About meI'm 27 and I teach music. I've always loved reading but for quite some time didn't have much time to do it. Finally I've figured out how to manage my time. (It helps that hubby and I drive to work together, so I can read in the car.)

When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left, I buy food and clothes.

About my libraryI've got a large mixing of books. Some are hubby's, most are mine. The library ranges from classic lit to a large number of Civil War/Military books. There are also a lot of supernatural/fantasy works.

Books that show no stars mean I haven't gotten around to reading/reviewing them yet. Bad books end up with 1/2 star.
