About meI'm 46 years old. Happily married for 17 years. Mother of 2 smart, wonderful kids. I love to read and talk about books. My husband is hooked on audiobooks now and I keep him supplied with thrillers and Dumas adventures.

I've vacationed, worked, and lived in many places in the US, enjoying it's many unique beauties. Currently I live Puerto Rico and have been here for 8 years now, working and raising our children. I wish I had been able to visit other parts of the world, it's such a great place to explore, but if I can't get my body there, a book is the next best thing.

I enjoy reading historical fiction, classics, history, biography, and world literature. But I wouldn't hesitate to read science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels, contemporary, or any other genre if the subject interests me. What is important is that it's a good story and well-written.

I became hooked on opera about two years ago. My favorite styles are baroque and bel canto and my favorite artists are Cecelia Bartoli, Natalie Dessay, and Juan Diego Flores.

About my libraryI would say my library is fairly eclectic.
