About me

I'm a retired high school English and Latin teacher just beginning a fourteenth (I can't believe it!) year of reading. Unfortunately, I can't read just one book at a time, so it's a day for rejoicing when I actually finish something. Otherwise, I stay in and look after my mother who turned 100 in November (complete vaccination in county is at 38% in early November), do Italian with DuoLingo, mess a bit with a cello, walk twice a day with husband, pet that husband and cats, and will eventually, maybe become a practicing pianist once more.


New Passion: IN DEATH that I Own
1-33 & #42 YIPPEEE! I've read 1-10. yippeee



About my library

I'm mostly through cataloguing my downstairs library at this point, but occasionally a book pops up that I missed. Almost everything I own is old, was bought used or with a bookstore employee discount or through our Native American offering of Penguin remainders.
