About meI live in southeastern Michigan, have a husband, three grown children and 3 grandsons. My husband and I run a project in Detroit called the Green Garage. We remodeled an old Model T showroom, doing a green and historic renovation of the building, and opened in the fall of 2011 as a green business incubator.

About my libraryI have a moderately sized library, supplemented by library books and some iBooks.

Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to learn a little more about the book before you commit:


Hi Peggy,
Christy here from lasagna gardening at MG College. I've just begun my own LibraryThing account, and added my two most recent books, plus the one I'm currently reading. I see many, many books in your list that I think I'd like, so don't think Stephen King and I are BFF, because we're not. :)
I see your recent posting on [My Life in France] by Julia Child. My husband just came back from a business trip in Canada and bought me that book. I am 100+ pages into it and love it. I love reading about the culture, besides reading about the food. If you know of other books like this please let me know.

We went to Petoskey Michigan one year on vacation and loved it. Are you anywhere near there? This year we are headed to Boothbay Harbor Maine. We love going near the water on our vacations.
