About meI live in Georgia, and in addition to reading, I enjoy music and sometimes enjoy gardening. My dog Milo is a lab/pit bull mix as you can see in his photo.

I read fiction in the fantasy, science fiction and mystery genres, some literary fiction, and any nonfiction that looks interesting that I run across.

About my libraryI use library thing to keep track of interesting things I read (and want to read) more than as a list of what I own. That way when I remember a book I read a few years ago that was about about intelligent microbes but I can't remember the author or title I might be able to figure it out!
