About meI enjoy going to used book sales (which explains the large number of "To Be Read" books in my library). I tend to pass a lot of my books on to friends or back to used book sales to benefit local charities. I like to read mysteries and thrillers, some women's fiction and popular fiction. Any book that has a great premise and believable well-rounded characters will be a hit with me. I have a healthy respect for the beautiful way that words can be strung together and become something more, something beautiful and otherworldly. I love a great story written by a skilled storyteller!

I am enjoying the LibraryThing experience - seeing what I have in common with other members as well as seeing what I have that seems to be obscure in this community.

Happy Reading,

About my libraryI mainly read for pleasure -- predominately fiction currently. I have, however, collected a nice balance of non-fiction over the years so that I have put together a rather eclectic library.

My library here on LT encompasses both the books I now physically possess and all the books that I have read -- at least all the ones that I can remember!
