About meI am 83 years old and have been reading since early childhood. I raised 5 children, all of whom are avid readers.
About my libraryI have not added any books to my library that I have not actually read. Occasionally I find it hard to remember whether I read the book or saw the movie. If there is any doubt, I do not add it. I feel very strongly about this, because this is a Library/Reading site, and if a story is worthwhile, then I feel we owe the author the courtesy of reading his words. Every once in a while, in a 1000 page book you find a short little sentence that really sets you back on your heels. These are the things you miss in a movie. I mention this because, in perusing other members books, I see Titles that were movies and not books, therefore shouldn't be included, in my opinion.
