About meI love to read. I am so obsessed that some afternoons at work I can hardly think about my tasks because all I want to do is read. I have had to make rules about reading. During the week, I can read at lunch, and between 11 and 12 p.m. I can also read if my boyfriend is watching sports. On the weekend, I can read whenever I want as long as I do not ignore my obligations, like eating.

About my libraryThis library consists of both my books and my boyfriend's books. Look in Collections to determine whether the book is his or mine.

Thank you so much, Jennifer; those are wonderful choices! I've been thinking that I should read "Middlesex" for a long time (just as I should get to more Ian McEwan). And of course there was so much talk of "Sisters brothers" in the run-up to the Giller earlier this year.

The surprise will be the Egan book, which I don't think I was even aware of. But a Pulitzer? For sure I'll read it.

This Christmas has produced most of a year's reading, as you can see from my recent Adds. As soon as I finish Mischa Berlinsky's "Fieldwork", I'll jump right in.

SantaThing was a blast. I hope you enjoy your books as much as I will the ones you chose for me.

Jennifer- Believe it or not I got the Spybot installed, (there was a box I needed to uncheck). It took forever, due to the PC running so slow but I am scanning now and, fingers crossed, it takes care of the problem. I'll find out when I get home from Work. Thanks again for your assistance.

Jennifer- Thank you so much for taking the time! Much appreciated. I ended up using a flash drive, (much easier) and transferred the exe.file. Unfortunately it wouldn't open on the infected PC because it tried opening the internet and the virus won't let the internet come up. What a hassle. I will keep the Spybot program, one good thing. Thanks again!

Jennifer- I DLed it my other computer. how would I transfer the spybot to a cd?

Jennifer thanks for your response. Seen you (figuratively of course) on some of the threads and looked up your growing collection. Keep reading and adding to your fascinating list and do stop by my thread if you have both the time and inclination.
thanks Jennifer for your response in Richards thread.
I have been dealing with depression and other psychological illness all my life, so my psychiatrist (and I) first took my lethargy and depression for an other episode in the row...
At least they have found the problem now, but I hope it won't take three years to get it all worked out ;-)
Exactly the reasons for my self-imposed rules-except in my case it's husband and after 25 years I feel I owe him at least that much. If he knew how I look forward to that first snore...
I jumped on your page from Luxx's 75 book challenge to check out your library and I love your rules for when you can read! I am right there with you. I can night after my husband falls asleep, when he is at work, when working I can only read at lunch and if I have housework but I'm alone I have to stop reading every hour to do another load of laundry or spend a half hour to an hour cleaning a room or bathroom. Oh goodness,that is funny. I can't believe I have to monitor my reading but I would never stop if I didn't! My husband says if I read one book from now till the day I die I would still have unread books in the house...if I never bought another book from this day forward! He's right! My response...So? MB
Thanks for adding BannedBooksLibrary to your interesting libraries. Happy Reading!
Thanks for adding my library to your list of interesting ones. Hope you find some good suggestions there!
I received "The Lost City of Z" by David Grann which looks fascinating and "Full Moon Rising" by Keri Arthur - which looks exactly like the sort of book to curl up with on a cold night. Thanks again!
Thanks for stopping by. Sorry to hear about your allergies -- it must be hard living without a cat if you're a cat-person at heart...
How do you like The Bean Trees? I read it years ago and only recently found out that there is a sequel, so now I'll have to reread TBT to refresh my memory before moving on to find out what happened next. Life is tough.:)

Thank you for the great books! Happy Holidays!
Thanks for the note! You know, Left Bank Books has opened a second store downtown, just as awesome! You should pop over to our Missouri Readers group too--we read & discuss books about Missouri or by Missourians. We've found some good stuff that I don't think I'd have found otherwise. Let me know next time you're in St. Charles. I always think it's fun to meet people I know just from online!
I hope you enjoy the books - I look forward to reading your thoughts on them, because we have pretty similar tastes in reading, and it was a lot of fun to pick the books out for you!
Another one from the DC area! Just saw you in the 2010 75 Books Challenge and had to say hi -- I'm in communications too.

Did you have a nice birthday?
