About meWe were childless for the first several years of our marriage. Avid readers both of us, we were in for the shock of our lives when the babies came after all. We had to free up floor space for them, and cases full of books were among the first things to get purged. Now we are a family of four avid readers, and shelf space is at a premium.

About my libraryWe rely upon the public library to have something fresh to read and enjoy. Otherwise, the books would have evicted us from our own home! We add conservatively to our own library, but lavishly to our childrens'shelves.

My husband likes natural history, archaeology, and reference in general. In his youth, he was a sci-fi fan. I read and use practical references frequently. I like almanacs. Who doesn't love cookbooks? I also enjoy historical fiction and mysteries. Since I am studying library technology and volunteer at childrens libraries, I have been mostly auditing childrens' and young adult fiction. I am thrilled at the quantity and quality of youth fiction out there. Kids nowdays have it so much better!
