About meIf forced to pick words to describe myself, my first choice is always "reader." After that, I'm proud to say I'm a mom of 2 smart, handsome, and kind guys who both like to read as well. I'm a private teacher/tutor with a couple thousand children's books in my possession and would have many more if I had the money and space. I just love picture books and have had to stay out of the children's section of my favorite book stores the last few years in order to make a profit. (I was also addicted to textbooks, but that's pretty much under control now.) The two things that would make me feel most richy-rich? To have every room in my house filled with flowers and books.

About my libraryI love the existence of libraries and depended on them as a child, but I didn't own a book until I was an adult, so tend to buy now rather than borrow. Although since joining LT, I'm having a harder time waiting for all the new fiction that everyone else seems to be reading, so have renewed my library card and started to use it. In lieu of starring books, I'm creating a "favorites" collection of books that I've especially enjoyed. I consider many of these my "comfort food" books--ones that I go back to when I'm tired, stressed, bored, or just wanting a for-sure good read.

I'm keeping my children's books out of my "main library" because I don't think most people will want to wade through them to check out my library, but I love children's books, especially picture books, and would buy many more if I could afford it. This collection only includes books I actually own. Throughout the years, I've read thousands of wonderful children's books that I've loved and would highly recommend, but haven't listed because I don't own them. Eventually I may add these as a separate category. Note: You'll often see that most of the books I'm adding are children's books, but this doesn't represent what I'm currently reading--it's just going to take a lot of time to enter in all the children's books I own. All I can say is it's nice to have the excuse that I need them in my job.
