About meMy passion is books, but I also love to write, draw, and to play piano “by ear". I hope to someday speak, read, and write Spanish fluently even though I'm just learning right now! :-P
For the past ten years, my average number of books read per year is around 75, although that number goes up and down depending on the craziness of my life in any given year. I belong to several online book discussion groups, and I spend a good deal of time searching for even more books to read. My personal library has grown tremendously thanks to library sales, goodwill shops, and yard sales, as well as Freecycle.org!
I'm also a Book Reviewer for FIRST Wild Card Blog Tours...And, of course, LibraryThing.com's "Early Reviewers".
My favorite genre is YA Fantasy. I love Christian fiction, and really enjoy reading Christian "emergent" nonfiction (ie: “A Scandalous Freedom" by Steve Brown, “The Barbarian Way" by Erwin Raphael McManus, “Velvet Elvis" by Rob Bell). Other books I enjoy are ones set in the time period of Regency England, and mysteries/thrillers. Favorite authors include Susan May Warren, Gaelen Foley, Sandra Brown, Christian Jacq, Karen Kingsbury, and Lisa Wingate.

Thanks for visiting my bookshelf!
About my libraryI've had my library catalogued in a database for the past 8 years, and I think that it's great to be able to show everyone my collection! I currently own over 1100 books!
I'm a sucker for a good cover, therefore a lot of the books on my virtual shelf, here, are chosen for their covers...not necessarily because that's the edition I have.
My favorite genres are Young Adult Fantasy/Romance, mystery/suspense, Christian fiction, health/fitness, and memoirs. I love Regency England, and some things about Ancient Egypt. I also love arty things ... music, drawing, architecture... so my shelf is peppered with these sorts of books.
I collect Classics, but haven't read many of them. I hope to someday. :? People tell me that the older you get, the more you enjoy them, so maybe I've got a few years...?
