About meI am a medical and consumer health librarian who loves to read. I am also a substitute in the public library system here in Pittsburgh. I am married, and the mother of two wonderful children - my daughter is a graduate pre-med student, and my son is a college freshman.

About my libraryAs you can probably tell, I love murder mysteries - mainly because I love to read about murderers being caught! Also, I like books that make me laugh, like Bill Bryson's books. I love Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels (especially the early ones), Repairman Jack by F. Paul Wilson, and Stephen King. I'm trying to read more non-fiction. Any suggestions?
