About meI'm in my 60s and a former New Yorker and corporate attorney, now happily retired and living in Idaho. I have a husband who I love spending time with, no kids, and a very spoiled cairn terrier. I’ve always enjoyed literary fiction and non-fiction but LT has expanded my reading horizons and in 2010 I began reading poetry, graphic novels, mysteries and children’s/YA books. I thought I read a lot before but my reading has really exploded since I joined LT and the “bj” (book junkie) part of my screen name turned out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

About my libraryMy Library consists of books I've read (but may not necessarily own) as well as books I own (some of which I haven't started or finished reading).

My current thread for my 75 Book Challenge in 2014 is here.
