About meI spent years working in bookstores. I have a "to be read" list that is ridiculously long, added to substantially by deciding to try to get through the 1001 Books list. (That "to be read" list has become so long that I no longer keep a list, in fact.) I'd read more, but I have too many other things I want to do as well!

One quirk about my reading: somewhere along about 2012/2013, I decided not to read reviews for books I haven't read. I also don't read the backs of books or other summaries. I practice a sort of "book roulette" for what I read that's not on a list - I go by author, or how many times I've seen the book title come up, or *gasp* the cover.

Things I enjoy doing when I'm not reading - drawing, taking photographs, knitting, cross-stitching, crocheting, and watching tennis (I like Rafa Nadal, David Ferrer, Grigor Dimitrov), soccer (I prefer the Italian Serie A, but the Colorado Rapids will do in a pinch) and football (I'm a Broncos fan by geography).

You can find my art and photography in a few places in addition to society6 - Zazzle ( has a selection of postcards, luggage tags, and other items, and my photography is on Redbubble ( If you want a peek behind the scenes, find me on Facebook:

About my libraryI'm kind of over keeping a lot of books - I have invested a fair amount of time in trying to read and get rid of books on my shelves. Accordingly, I expect the "My Library" category to get and stay small, but the "Read but Unowned" to expand. Eventually, I hope the listings here will really reflect what I have on the shelves, but it's not there yet.

Unless it's specifically tagged with "unread" or "unfinished," I've read it.
