About my libraryI've been living in Pueblo, which is about 100 miles south of Denver, for a little over a year. I really like the small city vibe of the place. I've gotten active with the local chapters of Indivisible and Moms Demand Action for Gun Safety and met a lot of wonderful, dedicated people.

Most of the books I read these days are eAudios or eBooks, mostly borrowed from the library, and I've begun to add those to my LT library, marking them as "borrowed," so that they count on the ER algorithm. I'm also fortunate to have great LT friends who give me books after they've read them or sometimes "just because." Thank you!
