About meAn avid Australian reader hoping to instill a love of good literature in her three children. Can't leave a good book sitting in a thrift shop, garage sale or book clearance and often ends up with two or more copies of the same book.

About my libraryA collection of books I've read, books I own and books I'd like to read. (If only there was more overlap!)

Kate, Thanks for the friendship request. Welcome to LibraryThing! Your "join date" was on my 40th birthday. Poetic. I have several friends living here in Alaska who are from Australia; mostly from the Perth area, because of the oil connection. Another Australian friend just moved back to Tasmania from here.

You asked "do I own everything I've ever wanted"? Heavens, no. Wonderful books keep being written, not to mention all the old ones that I've never heard of, but if I had, I know I would want to own and read them too. While I buy A LOT of books at thrift stores, I do still buy retail, partly because I don't want to wait for some new releases, but also because I want to make my favorite authors get their royalty.

I still have never "read" an audio or electronic book. What about you?
