About meReader, writer, researcher, lover of art and antiques, collector, cat person

About my libraryMy library is like my art collection or my collectibles: colorful, eclectic, reflective of my life interests and my curiosity of others, full of history and different cultures. I had floor-to-ceiling shelves built in two different rooms to hold all of these words, all these dreams, friends, pleasures, and memories. I do not hold on to all the books I read; I keep only selected ones. I give away books that are not memorable. Each volume remaining in my library has been kept for a reason.
