About meI live alone, sort of, with my Maremma dog Bertha, and my new puppy Bailey, in beautiful southern Colorado. I am mostly retired but sometimes do dog sitting and also sometimes work at a great small plant nursery, Perennial Favorites. I have been a mountain climber, long distance runner, alpaca rancher, fire fighter, librarian, among other things, but always a reader.

About my libraryI was an English Lit major in college (U. of Calif., Santa Barbara) so read many of the classics during that time and in high school (most not added to LT.) Have mainly been a fiction reader, but my new years resolution for 2011 and beyond is to read more widely in all categories. Never read many mysteries until the last few years. Now I seem to be reading quite a few mysteries especially mysteries from other countries (Sweden, England, Australia.) My goal is to cut down on the books I own (sacrilege on LT?)and borrow all the books I want to read from the library and through Inter Library Loan. But yes I do still have a small collection of travel books, garden books, cook books, and odds and ends.

I do try to rate books within genres. Too hard to compare otherwise.

Donna, you have been reading some awesome books lately.i can't wait to get the new Lahiri book. If I remember correctly, this one is a novel rather than short stories. She does both well. I really liked The Namesake and her two short story collections.

I hope your summer is going well and the fires have stayed out of your area. Thanks for popping into my thread occasionally. It's always a nice surprise.

So glad you tagged me -- love how you have detailed comments ... sure to be a valuable resource ~ Jenny
Happy New Year, Donna!

I tripped over you by following someone else (Gilmore53); saw your note to that member saying you're surrouneded by 14,000 peaks and just knew you had to be in my part of the country!

But what I really wanted to ask is, where did you get your profile photo of the girl reading in the hammock? And may I borrow it?
