About meRetired English teacher, voracious and eclectic reader with an interest in literature from around the world (Chinese, Indian, Islamic) as well as US, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Europe. I am also learning Spanish (began in January 2009), doting on my very first grandchild (born in Dec. 2008), and celebrating my second grandchild born in Kazakhstan in 2010! I do a good deal of gardening (flowers and vegetables) in Maine and spend much time on yoga, Pilates, and other gym focused activities. For years, my life was spent working with my mind. Now it is time for my body!!!!
About my librarySo far I have catalogued most of my books in Maine and in Massachusetts but have yet to tackle my husband's and my art, gardening, and travel books. Most recently, we built some new bookcases in Maine so I'm moving quite a few books there and trying to tag them "Maine," tedious but important to do. Mostly contemporary novels and all of my mysteries. Oh, for more time...! I've also given boxes and boxes of books away to our local libraries. And there are many more that, had I more will power, I could give away.
