About me"It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others--even my nearest and dearest--there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book." --Maureen Corrigan

I've been collecting/accumulating books for over 40 years. My library represents all the things I'm interested in. I enjoy being surrounded by books, which is a good thing, since my husband (AsYouKnow_Bob), our kids, and I have filled the house with them.

I always have bookmarks in several books at a time, and my TBR stack is way out of control. It would help a lot if I were a faster reader.


About my libraryEmbroidery, weaving, mysteries, poetry, and books on WWI form a major part of my library. I have many books on needlework, knitting, painting, illustration, photography, and design. Other interests include William and May Morris, historical photography, social history, and children's books, especially those with beautiful illustrations. I have a collection of Night Before Christmas books (tag: ttnbc); thank you to _Celeste_ for inspiring me to enter them on LT :)

One of my favorite places to buy books is at library book sales. I also have a great time hunting for and buying books at used book stores, book barns, charity shops, or online. We buy our fair share of new books (and probably plenty of other people's fair shares, as well). Bob knows which books are his, and I know which are mine. Usually.
