About mePart of my library.

One of my biggest pleasures in life is opening a new book.

I live in the sticks on 8 acres with husband, 2 cats, and a tank full of fish.

21-year old daughter is living in Wilmington, NC after deciding that college is not for her. She's looking for job(s) to cover her expenses.

I work as an "ICT Application Senior Specialist", bullshit title that it is, for a manufacturing company.

It's not a day if I haven't had a chance to read. I am always looking for new authors and areas of interest. I tend more to fiction than non-fiction but still probably read more non-fiction than most.

About my libraryExcept for 7 books that I keep in LT to keep the Early Reviewer Gods happy, every book in my library is somewhere on a shelf in my house. I don't use LT for wishlists, books I read but don't own, library books, etc.

So. What I own is eclectic. Shabby, brand new. Big, little. Straight, gay. Kid books, grown up books. Fiction, nonfiction, reference, old family Bibles, self-published books of poetry by friends of the family, and my grandmother's records book.

My collection is a combination of what I love to read and books I've inherited from family members. Some books I look at and say "Where did YOU come from?" Maybe they just migrate in.

I'm fortunate to have a husband who knows how important books are to me. The Library is 2 walls of floor to ceiling books. There are shelves upstairs in the parlour and shelves in the sunroom. Being surrounded by books is very important to me.
