About meI have been retired since 2001 from a large medical facility. My home is shared with 3 dogs and 2 cats. I have always loved to read and have always tried to instill that same love in the children in my life. Although I am not a professional teacher, after my early retirement, instead of seeking other employment, I homeschooled some children of friends that were not flourishing in public school. I have tutored students both privately and as a classroom volunteer. I want to share books and the joy of reading. I love to read aloud to the children in my life..

About my libraryMy library can be divided into two types. One comprised of adult books and the other, children’s books. I have created different collections to better organize and locate my books. My children’s library has copies of books I remember from my own childhood, actual books that I kept from my daughter’s childhood, the books I added during the years I homeschooled as part of the curriculum as well as for pleasure and is ever expanding to include wonderful books I am discovering today. I love reading to the children in my life and loan books that interest them and want to read at home. In the adult library, I have a large collection of cookbooks, craft books, gardening, DIY and home repair books. The adult library is expanding to include more of the classics as well as current fiction. I have a huge number of paperbacks, mostly romance novels that will not be catalogued. They are my secret “guilty pleasures”. Please note that I am still in the midst of cataloging my books, I still have 4 rooms in my home that have shelves of books not yet added to Librarything. They are part of my adult library, mostly older books that don’t have an ISBN barcode and must be entered by hand. I stopped working on the books when the weather warmed and I can get back to gardening and other outdoor pursuits. When late fall and winter hit, I will go back to cataloging my books.
