About meI'm a post-40 mom of 3. I don't have as much time for reading as I'd like, but I do manage to neglect my family enough to get some books in. I usually have a book in hand and a book on Kindle. Not simultaneously. Almost never while driving.

About my libraryI started this account to keep track of what I read by year. I started in Jan of 08. I'm not adding other beloved books at this point, just what I read as I read it, with a year tag. I'm all about the pretty collage of covers at the end of a year.
In spite of my advanced age, I have a continuing affection for YA fantasy novels. My first fantasy was the Thomas Covenant series by Stephen R. Donaldson--I started with the hard stuff, and gradually backed away.
I don't read tragic books. I don't want books about children who sicken and die. If a book's not going to be funny it better be REALLY good.
I can forgive a spotty plot for great characters and snappy dialogue. No amount of plot can make up for weak characters and lame dialogue.
Terry Pratchett should be named God.


Favorite authorsBill Bryson, Diana Gabaldon, Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, Judith Martin, Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman, David Sedaris, Gene Weingarten (Shared favorites)
