About meI am a Christian woman.

I am married to a man I met on a blind date in March 2002. We were married March 6, 2004.

I have a disease called SLE Lupus that has attacked my skin, joints, brain/central nervous system, heart, kidneys (in that order over the years). I was diagnosed in 1996 (I was 15 yrs old) and the disease has almost taken my life twice. I have survived for over 14 years...that is 14 years longer than the doctors predicted. I am so grateful that I re-learned to read after the brain damage in 1996.

Reading and cross stitch are the two things I love to do most. I enjoy long motorcycle rides with my husband. I am a homemaker but I am not a domestic woman. I do not like housework and I am a hoarder...but I am working on both of these issues.

I strive to live my life to the fullest and I hope that somewhere along the way I can inspire others to do the same. I try to live life with a positive attitude and not stress over the little things.

Jeremiah 29:11-13

About my libraryI mainly read mystery and true crime stories but I will read just about anything. I am not a huge history fan so getting me to read about history is probably my weakness...unless it is WWII history.

I just fount LT and so far I love it. This will give me an opportunity to organize all my books. My husband is finishing our basement and then I will have my library. I currently have 12 totes of books on the main floor of my house and 28 more totes of books in my basement (don't worry the basement has its own HVAC system so the books are safe). I cannot remember what books I have and what books I need to read so I hope this website will help keep me a little more organized.

I obviously collect books. I have a few ARC (signed) and many other signed books. My husband doesn't really understand my passion for books and why I am adamant about how they are treated. But he is super supportive and lets me continue to buy books even when I have totes of them all around our house. I look forward to being able to catalog my books and get myself ready for my library downstairs!

Thank you for one of the clearest and most concise reviews of my writing that I can recall.

Well done and well received,

That's wonderful, superb job!

I love wolves but I have no patience for cross stitch.

I love making snow angels, and snow men, and snow dogs, and...

...back in December 2010 we had 10" of snow, and I slid down the hill using a tray from a TV table as my sled. Woo!

I guess I'm a kid at heart, too.
Happy new year, and may you have many happy good reads in 2012! - Karen
Sorry that I missed posted about your birthday. June has been a difficult month. I hope your day was a special one!
Believe it or not, I've never been to the Book Browser. I don't think. Where is it?

Want to meet there sometime to see how much trouble we can get into, and maybe have a cuppa afterward?

Maybe I know you from NaNoWriMo. Do you NaNoWriMo?

GimpGirl community?
ooh! We have so many favorite authors in common (not that I've listed all mine on my LT profile)!

Loved your profile. What an inspiring story! Like most of us on LT we are addicted to books for some reason. I saw that we share 54 books. I am going to have a peak at your library and see if there are some there that would interest me (not that I need more.

Recently, I had received an early reviewer that you have already given your review for. I just start No Justice last night and already enjoying it. I saw that you enjoyed it too.

Also, I just looked at your library and we like a lot of the same authors. Amazing how that works sometimes!
Hi Jenny,

Yeah, nice to meet you. I love reading and cross-stitch and knitting. I focused on my knitting for the last couple of years, but am now moving back to the cross-stitch (and the five unfinished projects that have been waiting patiently for me). The only thing is after my absence, I now need to use a magnifier in the evenings for the half-stitches :P
Hi Jenny,

Just checking in to see how you're feeling. Hope all is well with you. I know you have a lot of cataloging to do, so take it easy. I am a Lay Speaker in the United Methodist Church; please know that you are in my daily prayers. You are an inspiration to all.

I see that you are reading Kisscut by Karin Slaughter. You are going to absolutely love her! I have all of her books; and it's really nice to have someone from Atlanta doing so well in the publishing world.

I am new to LT and I just love browsing everyone's libraries, especially those who share books with me. I notice that you are in Georgia; I am in Columbus, although I must admit I have never heard of Ball Ground, GA. Like you I love books and have them in every room. Most people do not understand my passion and love books: I MUST BE SURROUNDED BY BOOKS!!!! Hope to talk to you soon so that we can discuss our favorite reads.


Hi Jenny,

I'd like to thank you for your interest in "Eclipsed by Shadow," and congratulate you on winning a review copy through Member Giveaways. I hope you enjoy the new addition to your collection :)

The book should arrive by no later than early next week, please let me know if it hasn't.

"Eclipsed by Shadow" is the first volume of a trilogy and my debut title. The story won the Eric Hoffer Award for YA Fiction and other awards, including the Gold Mom's Choice Award for best YA Fantasy. (I am terrible at "marketing" so that's all I'll say, but the trilogy's website is

I would love any comments or feedback you have about the site, and I hope you enjoy the story!

You look so happy, it must have been a wonderful cruise.

No worries, I do not mind. I hope you had a good weekend. And A good one that's coming up.

When I fell ill two years ago, I spent time in two hospitals, and both gave me hospital gowns to keep (I don't know why, I didn't ask to keep them. lol.), and I pass those and (clean, new) hospital underwear between my grandma and I. You know at any holiday that one of us is going to open a gift with those horrible items inside. LOL. But I don't like hospital gowns either.

Hugs, Charlie.

Your lovely smile tells how happy you are!

I have only been to see Phantom of the Opera (twice), and Wicked (which I want to see a million times more), and I would love to see Rent. But there are so many that I want too see, but it costs so much! lol.

I'm glad I met you on here too! I guess I should say that I carry three books around. I always have one in my car, but I carry two in my bag. lol. Which people think is nuts. But like you said you never know when you will need some entertainment.

P.S. I am a House junkie (because I love Hugh Laurie), so I am glad that you liked the quote and that I didn't offend.

P.S.S. sorry I wrote you a short story comment! I'm long-winded. haha.

Have a great weekend!
That is exactly the kind of dog my daughter wants. She has loved bulldogs ever since my husband brought her a stuffed one from England when he was traveling there on business. She was only 2 or 3 at the time. If we ever got one, she always says she would like a smaller one. My husband says that is so she can dress it up in her doll clothes (she is 9)! Unfortunately, with 4 kids and prices being so high on gas, etc. right now, it doesn't look like we will be able to get one any time soon. My husband keeps looking at the rescue sites though to see if we could get one that way. She keeps hoping! Have a great day!
Welcome to LT and thanks for the friend invite! I love the pictures especially the ones of your dog. Is she a regular bulldog or a French bulldog? She is really cute! My daughter would love her!
Thanks for the friends invite Jenny!

Books books and more books! Sounds familiar. I have books all over the house too.

Good luck on getting your library done. I found LT to be crucial to getting my books organized and can't imagine how I did without it.

I liked your pics - especially the Indianapolis cross stitch.

See you around.

Good luck with your library..and the totes. I put mine in crates, used box number as tags. Unfortunately my basement is less than desirable. It is One way to organize your collection.
Thanks for the friend invite! I agree, it's always nice to bump into other Christians who are also readers. I'm trying to read more theology-type books, actually. My reading is very heavily skewed in favor of fiction, while my husband is the total opposite.

Let me know if you have any questions about LT. I'm not really an expert, but I've been here awhile and absolutely love it! And if I don't know an answer I can probably point you to someone who does.

Have a great week! :)

Hi, you might be interested in this group for posting your reviews of Early Reviewer books (in addition to putting your review on the work page for the book):

Well, you can be sure that there are lots of people who have the same 'problems' with their partners. I'm a member of several Dutch fora and have met quit a few, male and female.
We even give each other tips on how to get new books into the house secretly.;-)

Greetings from Holland!

May I add my welcome to everyone else on Librarything.I have certainly found it the very best site on the web.
Your story is quite inspiring and I hope all goes well for you.
I see that we share 106 books.
Very best wishes from the English Midlands
One of my favorite features on LT, is the Statistics/Memes page. From there you can see a list of Series that you own, and from there go to a Series page, to see the order or missing works, etc. Also, from that page you can see a list of Awards, and link off to the page with other works in that category. Good luck with you library...that sounds great! Most of my books are boxed for now, awaiting inspiration :)
Welcome! I would recommend that you read Caleb Carr's the Alienest and the sequel The Angel of Darkness - great mysteries that are also historical. Two of my all time favorite books, and I'm not a history buff either.
Welcome to LT! Yes, we have quite a few books in common. LT is such a great resource. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do :)
