About meI live in Waverly, Virginia, on an 18-acre farm with my husband, two dogs, 34 chickens 4 turkeys, and 18 pigs. I work from home as an executive director of a non-profit related to educational technology. I am a lifelong reader and bibliophile. In fact, my husband knew he could sell me on the farm because the 1850s farmhouse doesn't have much heat but it does have a library where I am happy to live amongst my books.

About my libraryI read lots of different books, but historical fiction is my favorite. I usually add books when I've finished them but recently, I've started to add some TBR as well.

Happy new year and great reading for 2012! - Karen
Hi. You received a copy of Effective Fundraising for Nonprofits from Nolo in the August 2010 Early Reviewers batch. I wanted to see what you thought of Effective Fundraising.

As someone who enjoyed "The Last Stand", you might want to read "Boots and Saddles" by Libbie Custer. It is available through many channels including Amazon Kindle at $0.99 See my review if interested.

Thanks for checking! I was going through all those steps too. :) Happy reading-- Emma
I just saw your post about Moyer's on the Green Dragon. It's so great to find someone else who's found that little gem! I'm actually trying to get my hands on his business phone number- you wouldn't have it by chance, would you? --Emma
I've sent you a friend request; I love historical fiction, especially the Tudor era, though I read a book about Marie Antoinette and plan to read more based on that time as well. I've always wanted to visit Williamsburg as a child but never was able to; now I plan to take my son!

Thanks for inviting me to be a LT friend. I am glad to accept. I was following you in the 75 book challenge but I find reading the threads to be a challenge, too. When I have time, I'll be reading to keep up with you.

"in time of daffodils(who know
the goal of living is to grow)
forgetting why,remember how

in time of lilacs who proclaim
the aim of waking is to dream,
remember so(forgetting seem)

in time of roses(who amaze
our now and here with paradise)
forgetting if,remember yes

in time of all sweet things beyond
whatever mind may comprehend,
remember seek(forgetting find)

and in a mystery to be
(when time from time shall set us free)
forgetting me,remember me"

Hi - thanks for the friend invite and the link to your travelouge. It sounds like you had a great trip! I am so jealous that you got to see the statue of Llwelyn the Great and the scarcophogus (sp??) of his wife. Have you read Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman (about Llwelyn and Joan(na))?? That is one of my all time favorite books!
