About meI'm a 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 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!)
