About meEnglish Lit degree; wild about Pinterest & LibraryThing. Life prevents me from reading nearly as much as I'd like - my 'To Read' collection is scary (and exciting!). I'm proud to say I've read Ulysses cover-to-cover and readily admit I understood about 5 words.

When I'm not reading, look for me in my garden!

About my libraryShelves by IKEA, but not enough of them. Am ambitiously planning to convert an unused closet into a bookcase.

Currently catalogued by the basic "read" and "unread" system (orderly yet disorderly).

I wish my shelves actually reflected more of what's listed on LT, but I'm limited by what my garage, bedroom, office, hallways, family room, and living room can handle -- and by what my husband is willing to lift each time we move.

Historical Fiction is my mainstay. Particular weakness for CanLit, gothic, Victorian or historical thrillers.
