About meBesides the fact that I love to read, in a nutshell I am a mom of two wonderful young men - happily employed at the city of Portland - married to an amazing man - I lived in the Middle East for many years - Glad to be back in the Pacific NW! And completely in love with LibraryThing.

I also want everyone to know that I am a PROUD CHARTER MEMBER of the Salon Littéraire du Peuple pour le Peuple - formerly known as the Salon Littéraire de Henri Freequi - formerly known as the Quest for the Last Page of Ulysses!

About my libraryI read everything from genre fiction to biography to essay. It will take me some time to remember what I have read and add it to this site. I left my real life library behind in Egypt (I am heartbroken over this! Check the "lost" tag to see all the books I *used* to own) and am slowly rebuilding it, but for now I am grateful to have a great county library system (Multnomah) to feed my addiction.

The books listed on LibraryThing will include books I have read, books I used to own, books I borrow, and books I currently own. I expect to add heavily to whatever you see here. I started using the tag system to indicate where I read them and whether I own them.

GroupsBully's Tavern, Cats, books, life is good., I became a fabulous opera, Infinite Jesters, Le Groupe des Mignon Photos, Le Salon des Amateurs de la Langue, Literary Snobs, Middle Eastern Literature, Oregonians, Outdoor Readersshow all groups
