About meAnother Shelfari castaway hoping to find similar friends and interests and reading challenges on this new site. I still enjoy reading quite a bit and have found that a) I really enjoy good historical fiction (i.e., no bodice ripping), and b) read more fantasy than true science fiction. But I like both genres and have friends in both worlds. And then there are the biographies and autobiographies that I find on bookshelves and find fascinating.

Oh, and I get my general fiction reading mostly through a local book group at our local library. Most of the books I get on loan but a few have found their way to my "i-own" shelf.

About my libraryWell, it's pretty extensive. Reading is one of my favorite past times and is how I unwind at the end of work, or during lunch, or on a weekend when it's just the best thing to do. And my library has grown exponentially with the help and influence of my friends on both Shelfari and Leafmarks. I am open to biographies, historical fiction, fantasy (and some sci-fi) and general fiction though not as much. Classics from time to time, especially if I'm reading them as part of a group.

I have met books I didn't like, and I usually put them down and do my best to give a fair review. And I've found one of the best things for these books is through the site bookcrossing.com, where I can release these books into the wild and track them while they find new homes.
