About meWhen I started writing in LiveJournal, I chose my user name after hours and hours of reflection.

Unfortunately, LiveJournal only allows 15 characters and my choice had 16. Because I was completely smitten, I dropped a letter and stuck with the misspelled name of nodressrehersal. It's from a Tragically Hip song, "... no dress rehearsal, this is our life."

I've been happily married for 37 years; we have two sons, 29 and 24, aka our surly youths.

As a professional organizer, I'm authorized to say there's such a thing as too many suitcases, too much jello in the pantry, or too many dolls with eyes that move, but never, ever, too many books.

About my libraryI read as much as time allows, mostly well-written fiction; my pace lately is slower than usual - a book a month.

I have to own the books I read, and I earmark pages because I can. Money spent on books is ALWAYS money well-spent.

I have chosen to rate only a few dozen books. The ones with five stars are those I would select if forced to fit my entire library into one good-sized box. Otherwise, I mostly love them all.
