About meA fifty-something wife and mother who has read voraciously for as long as I've been able to read. I am descended from librarians, so I prefer new and unused books and generally keep mine in near perfect condition. My major occupation is having fun with my computer; I get paid for editing a church newsletter and doing the weekly bulletin. In my spare time I knit, read, knit, read, play a computer game, watch TV, knit, and read. Oh, and raise foster kittens along with my DH and our four permanent owners, Angel, Simba, Willow, and Xander. (My picture shows Simba as a kitten, hanging with his Mom.)

About my libraryLeans heavily to mysteries, especially of the cozy variety. I prefer series and written about or by (or both) women. I do also dip into science fiction and fantasy, as well as Harry Potter. I like unabridged audiobooks that I can listen to in the car. I almost always buy paperbacks, as I can spread my book dollar farther that way, although there are authors I'm anxious enough to read that I'll buy them in hardback. In my youth I read a lot of the classics -- War and Peace (unabridged), Dickens, Hawthorne, Jane Austen, Harper Lee. That has left me free to read for fun for the rest of my life! Jane Austen and Harper Lee and James Michener I have read many times and will probably read many times yet to come. I will not be listing my entire collection of books here; that would require gathering them all up and I don't think I'll live long enough for that!
