About meMy husband and I live in Healdsburg and own a flight school in Santa Rosa, CA. We have one lovely daughter, 2 chatterbox cats, 3 ridiculously loving dogs and 3 muddy horses with many pesky deer and wild turkeys around the ranch. And now we have feral pigs! So destructive, Grrrr. We also are volunteer puppy raisers for Canine Companion for Independence and are currently raising our 6th puppy for them. Her name is Puzzle and she's doing great.
I love to read but have so little time between work and all the animals - I'm a lot slower than I used to be:( My goal for ALL YEARS! is to finish all the books I started last year and to try to curb the oh so delicious, yet expensive, habit of buying new books. I listen to many audio books on my computer while doing other things - this does nothing for my music library of course but audible.com does love me dearly;) This helps me read a lot more than I normally would be able to do time wise.

I recently discovered the Sonoma County Free Book Mobile (http://sonomacountybookmobile.org/) which gives books away to people who could not otherwise afford them. I have been happily donating books to them ever since thus creating more shelf space for more new books! A win - win situation:)

About my libraryI have always loved to read - my taste is all over the place, but mainly I just appreciate a good story. I choose books mainly for entertainment and escape from everyday life - but sometimes find that I actually do learn something. Cannot stand books by Danielle Steele or anything of that ilk, no mush please! And no VAMPIRE dreck. Anne Rice or George R. R. Martin are OK, but that's about it.

I made it to 49 books in 2010! So here we go again!
