About meI like to read (obviously), and I very much appreciate the OCD friendly nature of Library Thing where I can sit here and catagorize my books in a very thorough and useful way. What I like to read and what I like to do are reflected in my selection of books, and so are my college majors (psych and medieval studies) and the fact that I've got a masters in elementary education. I'm very busy in general, but most of my books are up here (now I've just got to review them all!). :}

Right now I'm very into swapping used books and cds and dvds!

About my libraryI like to own the books I read, though I'm at the point where I don't bother keeping all of them. The books in this library have been read, unless they are a reference kind of book that you simply don't read cover to cover- like the enneagram book. I won't post the ones in my library waiting for me to read them. My five oldest books don't have the right covers (and some others...), but one day I'll scan them- probably.

Here's my star rating system:
5 stars -Surpassing! Blows me away with brilliance!
4 stars -Excellent- I'd read this again
3 stars -Good
2 stars -Not so good
1 star -Why is this still in my library? Obviously there is some reason- what is it?

A note: The tag "historical" means not that it was written about the past, but that it was written in the past. We get a glimpse of the past just because the book was written so long ago.

This library doesn't have all my books. Those that are intended for my class library can be seen here: t1bclasslibrary.

More library! To see the books I've read but do not own, go here: t1bnotown

For Presence
by John O'Donohue

Awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.

Have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.

Receive encouragement when new frontiers beckon.

Respond to the call of your gift and the courage to
follow its path.

Let the flame of anger free you of all falsity.

May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame.

May anxiety never linger about you.

May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of

Take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek
no attention.

Be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
around the heart of wonder.

I'm almost done with MeowWow ... it definitely has some good stuff in there .. and I love the illustrations! I'm suprised nobody else has it. I had a hard time at first even finding it to catalog it.
You don't know me ... I just wanted to say hi because I noticed we are the only two people on LibraryThing who own "MeowWow."
I'm a HUGE fan of retold fairy tales (also of retold Shakespeare stories if they get the characters right), and I just wanted to drop by and say that I'll definitely be using your library for recommendations. Thanks a ton!
Right now I'm packing up my stuff to move, and I swear the books are breeding! Every time I turn around there's another one! They're everywhere! Help!
Just dropping by to say, "Hi!"
I am Kierkegaaaaaaaaaard!
