About meI'm a retired accountant who moved to the Tucson area in 2012 after my husband passed away.

I've always been an amateur book collector (for my personal library), lover of dogs (I've adopted Westies and Corgis), amateur artist (clay and Artist Trading Cards) and am learning how to garden in a desert environment.

When my most recent corgi passed away, in my sorrow I refused to adopt another dog so I volunteered at the local animal shelter. Most people who go to shelter to adopt a cat want kittens. Senior cats can stay for weeks, months, or never get adopted.

There I fell in love with an 18 year old Maine Coon cat. Ollie Cat was going downhill quickly and the thought of him dying in a cage made me sick. So I brought him home, cleaned him up, and made sure he had a nice place to eat and sleep. He is now my pest of a shadow who talks to me off and on all day long (and into the night). I love that old boy.

About my libraryWhen I retired to Tucson, AZ, in 2012 I had to downsize drastically. I gave many beloved books to my son where I know I can read them later if I want.

The books in my library are the books that I saved and the books I've purchased in subsequent years.

Since then I've been able to inventory all of my books. I'm careful to add each new book as soon as it enters my home.

I used the LibraryThing scanner to scan each book for my inventory then I uploaded them to both LibraryThing and All My Books, a software book inventory program designed for home libraries.

In addition I've downloaded the LibraryThing app to my phone. This has been a tremendous help in making sure that I don't purchase a duplicate book. I've been known to do that when I'm in a bookstore, much to my dismay when I get home and see the same book already on my bookshelf. When that happens I post the duplicate to (which also trades hardcover books) for a book on my wish list.

I've managed to sort my books by categories. The system is fairly arbitrary but it's been created from years of searching through my collection for specific books in a particular genre.
