About meI'm obviously an avid reader who was dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century by my daughter adding me as a friend here. :) It has opened up a whole new world to me. She has been blogging for three years and had added me as a guest blogger on her site under the alias Rosefire. Now I'm taking baby steps on my own by setting up my own blog. I truly never realized that there were so many people on the Internet who shared my same obsession with reading but it's wonderful to meet you all. By the way, my daughter is RubyandtheTwins on this site.
About my library"Hello, my name is Rosefire and I'm a bookaholic." I'm not too sure exactly how many books I may have in my library, (probably over 1,000) but I honestly cannot pass up a monthly visit to my local library's book sale where paperbacks are fifty cents and hardcovers are one dollar. Before my husband passed away, he never minded how much I read, but for the sake of his sanity, I never shared with him the exact number of the books that myself or my daughter bought from thrift stores, library book sales or bookstores. She and I could easily spend two hundred dollars between us at the library book sale - I don't think that we ever have - but from the stack of books that we'd borrowed or bought from the library we generally 'debuted' each book about a week or so after each library visit. We never actually lied to my husband about where we acquired our most of our new 'stash'; he knew the books were primarily from the library book sale - we just might have stretched the 'period of acquisition'. Or my daughter might have claimed a book as hers when it was actually mine.
