About meI'm a bookworm and mother of 13 year old triplets. I read a lot of mysteries and novels, including Canadian literature. My husband also loves hard science fiction, scientific books, and books on hiking and mountaineering.

About my libraryI began the catalogue with the children's books. Our kids are in grade eight now, so their library has shifted from picture books to chapter books and now novels, as they have become avid readers.
We're still cataloguing our adult collection, one shelf at a time: began with classic novels, Canadian literature, thrillers and mysteries. This is a lengthy project! There are a few thousand science fiction we haven't gotten to yet.

I have 19 year old triplet girls who have a 21 year old brother. I still remember the bedtime story ritual that lasted until about ages 11 and 13 respectively. By the end the kids took turns and read to each other mostly. All of the books we read are sitting together on a special shelf in the library. However, we didn't finish our last book which was Paddy Clark Ha Ha! After that we tried reading Robert Frost poems and Shakespeare speeches at the dinner table, but it got to be a bit heavy for teenagers. Since then 2 out of four are noticeable in being active readers, and the other two not quite as much, but still studying very hard.
Thanks! Just reviewed Twin and Triplet Psychology: A Professional Guide to Working with Multiples. You might find it interesting as it plenty of information geared towards triplets, including a chapter, The Psychology of Triplets.
Just joined Library Thing and was very flattered (and thankful!) for your positive review of my book, Parenting School-Age Twins and Multiples. I loved researching and writing it, so I'm glad you found it of value.

My hat is off to you as the mother of triplets. I have fraternal twin boys and a younger singleton--it's more than I can handle!

Enjoy the summer!
The Haggis... It shows the cover in my catalogue and on the book page. Perhaps it will update in time?

More power to your arm with the triplets, I have a friend who has 12 year old triplets by herself (well no, obviously not "by herself", but she is now) and she deserves a medal.

A' the best.

Hi - I see you added me to your interesting libraries. I'm flattered. Looks like we have a lot of common interests in our reading. Nice picture by the way - get them hooked on books when they are young!
"It's exciting to see new features added, and to see more and more reviews and Common Knowledge added by users."
Yes indeed, though it gets temporarily frustrating when the staff are trying to get something new or an improvement to work and it interferes with other things.

"Christie fan"
Most of the crime books I'm cataloging are really in my wife's part of the library, she's more the crime fan, and the science fiction is more my part. I don't really consider myself a Christie fan, having read a couple of books a long time ago and not much enjoyed them, but I did like the TV series Miss Marple with Joan Hickson and Poirot with David Suchet, so I'll probably give the books another try.
Hello - Thanks for your review of Cue for Treason by Geoffrey Trease. Your last word - 'memorable' - is so true. I'm pushing 60 right now, but I remember with great fondness my desire to devour every Geoffrey Trease novel I could find, when I was 13. I guess I found him at the exact point when I could identify best with those oh-so-adventurous-for-the-early-1960s protagonists. I found two of Trease's novels at Alibris so my boys could read them, too.
So nice to hear from you tripleblessings. I am indeed Canadian and I note that you live in Saskatchewan. I grew up in Saskatchewan but attended university in Edmonton, Alberta and earned my law degree here in 1978. I have practised here for , my god, almost 30 years now, but my passion is books. My family puts up with my book collecting. My husband and children( 25 and 18) are all avid readers but I'm the collector. My library includes their books as well so no I have not read all of the history and political science books on the middle east. That is my son who is doing a graduate degree in history on the coast. I sometimes think I only survived a childhood in rural Saskathcewan because of reading which I commenced at the age of 4 as a complete escape from reality. My goal is to get our kids through the expensive university years and then retire and do nothing but books.

The mysteries and Canadian literature are for the most part mine.

Best Wishes,
