About meSometime in the last few years my relationship with the novel changed and I don't know if this is inevitable or even if it has any message, but I am reading less exultantly and heedlessly. I do not sink into the novel as I used to, becoming characters or living in the time and space of the book. I am now more of an observer. I don't think the change has been as gradual as the other age related changes. While not sudden, it has been fast and has taken with it many of my other flights of fancy.

About my libraryThe house is full of books, even after a serious weeding for a new library that appealed to me for a starter donation. My budget blown for books. I am mad for lit and good fiction, have a taste for history and science, but then there is the thing with mystery, science fiction/fantasy and humor. There is the garden section, the travel section and an entire bookcase of cookbooks. The camper has field books on natural history.
