About meI finally put up a new profile picture. That is my cute husband reading a book while lying on a picnic table. Both of us have a book with us at all times. We had gone on a road trip and found a park on the lake. We'll take any opportunity to stop our lives for a bit and read together.

About my libraryI have more "unread" books in my library than "read". I'm such a slow reader. The books in my library are books that I actually own. The list of books I indicate as "read" during a certain year is not going to be a complete list for that year since anything I borrowed will not be represented. If I've read it but didn't give it a star rating - I just can't remember.
I love that I can "tag" my books, here, and so arrange them in different ways which is difficult in my actual physical library. I've told my husband, "There are never too many ways for me to look at my books."
