About My Library
I generally only add books to my library as I read them, or to my wishlist as a reminder to myself. I have read many, many more books than would be indicated by my LT library, and have many, many more on my shelves, waiting to be read that I haven't yet added to LT.

I have an eclectic taste in books, so you're liable to find titles from all kinds of genres in my collection as I build my library. My favorite genres and sub-genres are classics, especially English and American, mystery, especially cozies, and travel writing, espcecially exploration and Victorian travelogues.
About Me
I'm an ovarian cancer survivor. I live with my wonderful husband who has been a fantastic caretaker when needed, and my warm, furry, purry companion, Mrs. Gaskell, who loves to cuddle early in the morning while I read and drink my coffee.

We have a grown son who graduated with a double major (History and Political Science). He works at an inner-city middle school and is extremely involved in community service. Obviously, we're very proud of him.

I'm a former bookseller. Unfortunately, the cancer has left me disabled and unable to work. I miss it terribly, but my family, Mrs. Gaskell, and my books have helped me adjust.
