About me"When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever step out of it."
Marie de Sevigne

"It seems, somehow, that she has left her own world and entered the realm of the book."
Michael Cunningham

I am a nondescript, short, round person who blends easily into a crowd. I live with my instructional designer/musician husband, one of my sons, 1 really cute dog, 1 hyper corgi, and 1 very old normal cat. My older son is married to a wonderful and beautiful young lady, so I am now a mother-in-law. I left teaching after 10 years, tried to find another job, and ended up back in education anyway. I am now a special education teacher in a local high school, teaching severely and profoundly delayed students. I read voraciously. If I could get paid for that, we'd be wealthy.

About my libraryI have quite an eclectic collection. I like many genres, depending on my mood. I buy books faster than I can read them, so they are stacked all over my house in various strange places. Purchasing a Nook and a Kindle did not curtail the book buying. Update 2014: As I am getting older, and after moving my son and his wife twice in a year, I am downsizing, which means I will be culling books. If I have read it, it will stay listed. I have copies of classics that I can get anytime, or may already have, on my Kindle or Nook, plus I know that at this point, I won't be teaching English again, so it is time to let those books go. I want to be surrounded by things that make me happy, and thinking about my years teaching English does not make me happy!

I have kept track of the books I have read for almost 10 years now on index cards. I hope to get these recorded in my library soon. It will take me awhile! They will be tagged "Read 2006", with the appropriate year. One goal I have is to note the location of all my books through appropriate tags. I'm tired of not being able to find anything!
