About mei've loved to read ever since i can remember. for a long time i was good about not buying novels unless i really liked them. wish i could say that for today. The past several years i've been on a buying spree of books for 1 dollar or 50 cents from libraries and half price books. Also enjoy purchasing something fun with my borders coupons. I never buy books full price unless it's a present for someone else.

I have a degree in graphic design and minor in photography. I really enjoy book arts, zines, comics, and artist books.

About my libraryThese are most of the books I own. I'm not sure if I'll add all the books from my childhood that I can't part with. I've added some already, but some are rather silly, I think that means I should really get rid of them, we'll see if that will happen! A lot of the unread ones I've bought in the last few years. I'm definitely buying faster than i can read. I have a notebook that contains a list of all the books I've read that goes back when I was in 5th-6th grade. (about 14 years) I just past 600 books on that list!

I also used to read a lot of library books (more than i should) but those are not accounted for on here. I'm trying to stop that for the time being because of the amount of my own books that are unread.

Hey! It's been a while since I was on here.. :)
I have just added you to my interesting library list, because we share 35 of the same books and I saw that you have added Martha's new book. I look forward to your review of it (if you do one!)
Hey, I'm getting Leftovers from LTER too! Sounds interesting, hope it's good!

Brenda
Hehe, it's alright to have many different usernames! I know I definitely do the same. :) As long as we eventually find each other in the end... then it's all good!
Hello! *waves back* You know, it's funny because I've seen your username on LT's Similar Libraries list but I never knew it was you! :)
Merry Christmas! I think you were my Secret Santa -- my family recycles so quickly that the packing slip was sent away.....ack! :)

But the books you chose are terrific! Well done! They both are really fun and I had looked at the both while shopping the other day -- so you really did great. It was a total surprise when they arrived on the front porch -- what a treat! :)

Thanks so much and I hope you are well!
Excellent! Glad they were OK. I hope you'll let me know what you think of them after you've read them.

Who did you end up being Santa for? Isn't it interestinig to get to get a glimpse of someone else by checking out their library and their wish list? I think Secret Santa is a lot of fun, and am already looking forward to doing it again next year!

Best wishes to you and yours for this holiday season and on into the next year.
I took your advice and I'm glad to be here! Now I will slowly add my books into my library and find oh so many more that I want to have as well ...
YAY!
Y'know what's strange?? After I sent you that message yesterday, today I got a message from PBS saying there was a copy of Read My Lips available for me! How weird! Now we both get a copy! :)
Woo-hoo! You finally got Read My Lips! Good for you!
:)
hey, I like your books :)
Hi Alea,
Confessions of a Contractor is yours. I don't do Bookmooch and a trade isn't really necessary (I have too many books already!). PM me your address and I'll send it along!
Denise
Cool, I'm glad you joined the Comics for Women group. It's been pretty inactive but maybe will get going again...Love your library!
Thanks for accepting my friend invitation! I enjoyed a stroll through your library. Many reminders of books I've read; and others I'd planned to, but had forgotten about.

All best,

Hannah
Hiya,

I see that you got Read My Lips. Good for you! It looked interesting but I didn't want to compete with you for it, so I only added it to my PBS wishlist. If you want to get rid of it when your done, let me know. (If not, no big deal, it'll come up again!)

I know you like YA books - so I thought I'd show you one that looks good and is coming up on my wishlist (I already have a copy coming - but I don't remove from WL until the book is actually in my hands.)

Have to break down and actually BUY some books this week - Breaking Dawn is coming out! :)

Brenda
Hahahaha! I think you're the same Alea from bookmooch! (you requested two of my books recently).
Weird, huh? lol
I didn't know you had a librarything account! I am absolutely a librarything maniac!
Well, I hope you have a good day! =)

Jenny

(By the way, I'm still a little uncertain about sending those books. I'll keep ya updated though!)
Hi mint910: Actually it was jenlaw who is from D.C., which is where Kramer's is. I got that mixed up. I can't see where you're from. (I *used* to be from D.C., in a former life.) But here is the website: http://www.kramers.com/. It is a totally wonderfully place, but nothing in terms of books compared to Powell's. But in a way, Powell's was TOO much. If you don't have a specific area in mind, there's no way to browse - it's just too overwhelming! Kramer & Afterwards sort of specializes in political affairs books. AND great drinks and desserts! :--)
Hey I saw your post about not receiving American Wife. I actually got 2 copies of this book. If you still want a copy, you can e-mail me, and I can send it out to you. Let me know!
I'm sorry, I was venting. I'm better now.
What's the book that you want? Maybe it'll go off reserve and then you can grab it.
I think they are slowly catching on. About a month ago, the library served as the makeup/dressing room for the drama department after school and a lot of those kids were into them. I've sent out emails to faculty and staff explaining what they are and to encourage their students to check them. I've also wrote about them in the library newsletter and created a display in the main display case.

I'm with you; I wish my high school had zines when I was young. I didn't get into them really until the summer before I started college. They would've inspired me to write more during high school. C'est la vie. Hopefully this collection will inspire kids.
Thank you for the invite. Just added a few more. I'm up to maybe 10.

Hiya! Only other person on this whole site that has/or has read Wrongboy. I love this book, it makes me smile whichever page I flick it open to. I think I lent it to someone without keeping track, now I miss it! That's all, just thought I would leave a quickie. Cheers, Bridie.
Thank you for your comment -- same to you! It's so nice to see someone else who has such a collection -- Kafka on one shelf, "The Wright 3" (which I loved, BTW) on the other. (That's what i love about library thing -- I think the juxtapostion is so funny when the random books pop up.) Happy reading to you as well! PS I love your picture!
