About meI'm a classic bookworm - I'd much rather read a book than watch TV or a movie.
I'm a huge Anglophile. I'm still saving for my trip to the UK, but in the meantime I'm always looking for British novels that you can't buy in the US. I also enjoy reading British magazines like Heat!, OK!, Hello, and the British versions of Glamour and Marie Claire. And I love chocolate HobNob biscuits and Nestle Milky Bars. :)
When I'm not reading, I'm at my sons' soccer games or scrapbooking (digitally and traditionally).
I've been happily married for nearly 16 years, and we have 3 wonderful sons.
--My 13-year-old is a GATE student in eigth grade, and is quite the numbers whiz! He also loves WWII history, soccer (he's a referee for his brother's AYSO team), and video games. He likes reading, and enjoys adventure and humor books.
--My 11-year-old is in sixth grade. He is our comedian, and is always trying to make us laugh. :) He's also our soccer star, playing mid and forward on a club team.
--My 9-year-old is in fourth grade. He's a stubborn little boy just like his Dad, but he also has a sweet side. He wants to be a veterinarian when he grows up.
I'm also a lead technical writer/editor for a safety and critical control systems company.

About my libraryMy favorite genres right now are chick lit (especially British chick lit) and WW-II era historical fiction. I also like non-fiction - particularly American Revolutionary war history, and British social history 1930-1960. But, I'll read almost anything if it sounds interesting. :)
I take good care of my books and try not to crack a spine or turn a corner down. Because as my grandma always told me, books are our friends! :) LOL!
