About meI'm a mid-30s, mother of 4 who has been known to home-school on occasion. I love history and language. I love to be creative, and love to escape into a good book. I love Jane Austen for her wit and observation, and Willa Cather for her insight and language, Leo Tolstoy for his philosophy. My favorite 'genre' is 19th century Lit (tied with more current literary fiction), but that doesn't keep me from reading other things too. My dream is to have a library the size of Barnes & Noble...and to have read every book in it. Bit by bit!

About my libraryI love owning books. The smell, the feel, the look. However, I don't have any problem getting rid of books that I don't think I'll ever reread or recommend. Therefore my library is in a somewhat constant state of review (enter LibraryThing to help me keep track of it all!)
