About meI am retired (University Library). I garden when the snow melts; make time for tv shows (Antiques Roadshow & other PBS shows) visit, shop and read... mysteries mostly it appears! Time for another cat, perhaps.

About my libraryClinging to my firsts, but adding few lately (due to bags full of pb mysteries & lack of bookshelf space -- boxed books are depressing). My LT Library listing began with books I am keeping here at home, read or un-read and "waiting", and now in at the end of 2009 am adding books read and unowned since my computer died and I lost my reading lists, starting from hand-written lists I began in 1996. Some series I may want completed and will need to tag "pre-1996" I suppose! Most of my paperbacks get traded in or given to our Library sale table. I lean toward fiction & mystery related to England, art, books, writing, antiques, and gardening; books on books, book collecting, antiques, some biography and music, very little science fiction.
