About meI'm a stay-at-home mother of three young sons who keep me running. I recently graduated with my master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois. My personal time is at a premium, and I spend it reading or looking for the next great read.



About my libraryI accumulate books at a much faster rate than I can read them. This year I expect to read fewer books than I normally would, as I am rereading the Diana Gabaldon chunksters from the fabulous Outlander series in preparation for the release of book eight, Written in My Own Heart's Blood. Squeeee! I'm using Librivox Audio to catch up on some classics, too.

Read in 2014:

Divergent - Veronica Roth - 4 stars
Drums of Autumn - Diana Gabaldon - 5 stars (reread)
House of Mirth - Edith Wharton - 5 stars (Librivox Audio, read by Elizabeth Klett)
My Wish List - Gregoire Delacourt - 3 stars
Voyager - Diana Gabaldon - 5 stars (reread)
Excellent Women - Barbara Pym - 4 stars
The Countess Below Stairs - Eva Ibbotson - 4 stars
Cousin Phillis - Elizabeth Gaskell - 5 stars (Librivox Audio, read by Elizabeth Klett)
Wives and Daughters - Elizabeth Gaskell - 5 stars (Librivox Audio, read by Elizabeth Klett)
Dragonfly in Amber - Diana Gabaldon - 5 stars (reread)
Three Wishes - Liane Moriarty - 3 stars
Outlander - Diana Gabaldon - 5 stars (reread)

Just wanted you to know I'm enjoying Unbroken -- the audiobook, beautifully read by Edward Hermann. Thanks for recommending it!
I see that baby is very much on your mind these days!! Thank you so much for my lovely card and fairy book mark, loved it !
Te quiero mucho mi amiga!!
Hi Sky34,

I really like your library - it looks like we share some less-than-common books - so I marked you as one of my "interesting libraries". Good luck with your master's degree!

Cheers,
Laura
Nice to see a picture of you and your sons on here, Rina! Best wishes, John
I wrote a paper about L.M. Montgomery in high school and the Prince Edward
Island website is great and they have some great Montgomery tourism magazines.
A great job, graduate school, a babysitter the boys love -- woohoo! :) (and a husband who's 10% wife!) Good for you!

Did you actually receive Schooled? I snagged it for June but it hasn't arrived yet. I see that the author posted some inflammatory comments against the reviews on amazon ... she's since deleted them. Yikes.

A word about Demille's The Gold Coast -- it's more an homage to The Great Gatsby than a typical DeMille thriller ... combine its 500+ pages with a v-e-r-y leisurely pace and you're getting the idea. But it is a nice biography of that area of Long Island (NY), and it's laugh-out-loud funny in places. I'm a big DeMille fan and got very bold and asked the publisher directly for an arc of his follow-up, The Gate House ... I was over the moon when I got it! That's the next big book on my list (after The Poisonwood Bible, which I've almost finished), I'm trying to read one of my looooong books every month.

Hi, how are you managing between the library and home?? I thought of you when I read my July Early Reviewer book -- My Husband's Sweethearts by Bridget Asher. It's chick-lit with a hint of Elinor Lipman and I gave it 4 stars. Very quick and light, take a look.

Hi there
just to let you know I have updated the piccy of my cat. I took the new pic today. She was a year old in May. I think you'll like it.
Kate
Hi again
sorry, I just realised your profile tells me what you are currently reading so I needn't have asked! Senior moments rule my life ha ha!!!
Kate
Hi
I can't actually remember what brought me to your library, sorry!! It may have been that I was looking for a specific book and you were one of the people that has it. Isn't Librarything fascinating! I continually request books from my local library now!! They must be getting fed up with me! lol But I keep them in a job! Just received Ben Okri's book 'The Famished Road' off ebay today. But I have about 5 books in a pile to read first. I only manage to read about 2 books a week, depending on size of course.What are you reading just now?
I'm glad you find my little kitty cute! She's bigger now but she's just so gorgeous. Spoiled rotten and a feisty little madam!!
Well, I'll go for now. Maybe catch up with you again soon. I hope you and your loved ones are all well.
Kind regards
Kate
Just had to tell you your children are absolutely gorgeous! And I will look at your library too!!! lol
WooHOO!! Congratulations on your job and your graduate program! But what are you doing -- posting here in the middle of the night?! :)
Woke up to bits of "sky" all around me ... what a great morning! :)

"The Book Thief" is already delivering on originality and emotion, both of which are high on my list of what makes a good read. Feels wonderful to be in a book I can't wait to get back to!
I finally remembered to add you to my friends list. Your children are so darn adorable!
Hi there,
Just wondering if you still have Sophie Kinsella, Remember Me, or Certain Girls by Jennifer Weiner.
I would be interested in purchasing both from you.
