About meWorking mom (widowed some four years ago) who gets a lot of hope, inspiration, solace and joy from a good read. Grateful that I can afford books and steal time to read. I love good laughs, great music, lap-swimming and travel (hope to get back to it once my kids get a little older).

About my libraryI seem to be drawn to Booker and Pulitzer prize-winning (or nominated) novels, and young adult lit (to guide my kids to good reading and just because I like it!). In earlier days, I devoured everything by Jane Austen and Kurt Vonnegut (not exactly similar in their styles, but beloved by the masses and me).
