About meI learned to read when I was four. My mother was expecting her 4th child and no longer had time to read me 20 books a day. Every photo since then, in the family album, I am holding a book. I've been reading a lot for a long time.
My first favorite author was Louisa May Alcott, followed by L.M. Montgomery, Jane Austen, and J.R.R. Tolkien. I love biography, historical fiction, non-fiction, essays, romance (think Georgette Heyer, not Danielle Steele) and everything in between.
Now that I'm all grown up and have 3 kids a husband and a small business, I don't read as fast as I used to. So many books, so little time.
Note to self: to put a photo on a thread use {img smc ="" }and put the image url between the quotation marks.

About my libraryIt's big and it's growing. I just can't help myself. One of my friends told me once that I was the only person they knew who would need a shopping cart in a bookstore. That might be true, but I'm pretty picky about what makes it into my library.
