About meA retired public librarian who has lived in northwest
Ohio all of my life...except for a year to attend library school at U of Michigan, but then Ann Arbor is only 90 miles from where I live. And that means Aunt Agatha' that close as well.

About my libraryI amass books, rather than collect them.
But the bulk of my books are mysteries and I haven't even
started on the multiple cases of shelved in alphabetical order ones.
Also am interested in history, religion, movies and theatre as well as having basic reference books on hand.

First let me mention that the main characters in the book are the readers and the readers are the audience too. Find out how and what character describes you best throughout the novel. Fear is one of the main forces that create this illusion of freedom. �Just because you are scared does not mean you are entitled to back down,� (Lemon). Believing the belief that you are free is the very belief that creates this illusion. Then this belief traps you within an illusion of freedom and is the very belief that prevents you from realizing you are not free by any means of what you thought freedom was and what freedom really is. You believing that belief is what prevent you from discovering, seeing, understanding and experiencing what true freedom is and means. You can get out of this illusion through an 8 phase process that is offered within this novel. My book is a manuscript that offers the following: internal psychology, optimistic/positive psychology, reflective psychology, self-improvement psychology, self-knowledge psychology, therapy, spirituality, sociology, philosophy, workology, streetology, survivology (higher survival awareness /teens and adults), better relationship awareness (work, couples, or in general) and is a parental guide. This is not a conspiracy theory novel nor is it fiction. It is real events and real experiences anyone can experience. This book is a self-improvement; self-developmental novel that shows people how to find and bring out their deep rooted power, true freedom, and potential of which they never knew existed or never knew how to bring out.
Ms. Norris: You seem to be an expert on mystery stories, and I see you have one of the Sally Wright mysteries. I can't decide if they are really any good and would like your opinion.
I just noticed your praises of LT. I joined LT around the time I joined 4MA. And, now I am looking into the connected people between the two. Your library is massive. I think when my TBR pile runs out, I can search yours for new choices!
The Sharan Newman book sounds interesting.
Notice that you have Mark Schweizer's Liturgical mystery series and was wondering if you read them.
For my mystery group at joseph beth we read the first. It was one of the few books that everyone liked.
ps nice mystery collection
Hi, I just joined this site. I noticed that you're a Da Vinci Code fan. Have you read Synarchy? Here's a link:
The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only hope. (William Cronon)

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads. (Henry David Thoreau)

I have come to terms with the future. From this day onward I will walk easy on the earth. Plant trees. Kill no living things. Live in harmony with all creatures. I will restore the earth where I am. Use no more of its resources than I need. And listen, listen to what it is telling me. (M.J. Slim Hooey)
I might just see you there in Chicago. And hey, there's a nice restaurant just a block away....
A walking guide to Minneapolis - that's exactly what I should write! A kind Escher approach to walking six blocks to get to a place that is a block away. But actually, the next Anni book will be out in 2010, which seems very far away.... I must be good at taking the long route, eh?

What a lot of books in your library! I'm impressed. And we share many.
