About meI love to read more than anything. I have three daughters, who have grown up to be more wonderful people than I had ever dreamed of having the privilege to influence. LibraryThing has given me the opportunity of being among people who love to read, who cherish the feeling of a new book in their hands, the smell of the ink, the feel of the page, the adventure to come. I have a degree in literature and creative writing from Stockton College, and try to read and write as often as I can. I am a dog owner(4 females and 1 happy male)and a dog lover. We have a Bengal cat,Miles(male and brought home by my daughter when she came home again)whom we just love for his independent nature. Our calico girl,Maude My husband calls her Little, although she is not. Now, the latest, what I call addition without permission is what we think is a marmalade and the vet concurs. Her name is Baby Beats. Update- Now that she has grown up some, we begin to suspect that she may be a dwarf cat of some sort as she has stayed quite small, like a perfect petite example of a grown cat. Above is a picture of my beautiful,smart,black-and-tan dappled mini-dachshund Boston Baked Beans, more popularly known as Boston, or Boss or Bossy, which was much more indicative of her nature. She was our dominant female, at a whopping 20 lbs. We unfortunately had to have her put down only a month or so ago, as she became ill and it was so difficult to watch her suffering. She was so full of life, and so quickly brought down. I miss her greeting me every morning. I miss her keeping the rest of the pack in line. We will never forget her. Now there is our golden wire-haired dachshund Kaia and our 4 American Bulldogs, Lyla, Remy, Rae and Darla.Nylons was a Chinese-Crested that was retired by her breeder and so came to us.Sadly, we had to put her to sleep right after New Years, 2012. She had CHF and we couldn't see her suffering. She was a brave girl and lived a long and happy life. She had lovely long white and caramel locks on her head and tail that need cutting regularly. So exists my zoo, although I have decided we should call it the barnyard.
About my libraryMy library consists of a wide variety of books. I don't keep books I have read unless I truly love the book and just like to look at it from time to time, will read it again, or want to pass it on to someone else. Most of my books have been acquired through library sales, some through Atlantic Books,some through Barnes and Noble, and some from a local thrift shop, where I am often surprised by a good find, historical fiction or biography. I used to find the best prices at Atlantic Books( since closed, leaving us without a bookstore for 30 miles around) and of course at library sales. I often pass my books on, sometimes I want them back, sometimes I don't. I read several literary magazines, Poets and Writers, Writers Magazine,The Rambler, etc.and a new favorite is a craft magazine "Cloth,Paper,Scissors"My Library at
