About meI am retired and so get to play all day, reading and frolicking on the computer. Definitely a grasshopper life.
About my libraryMy library is very eclectic with lots of everything now including Romance (I discovered Georgette Heyer). Once I own a book it seldom goes away. I am an absolute packrat.
