About meI'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.

About my libraryI 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.

Hi! Just checking in. I hope you're still home with your cat and your books!
Good luck with your chemo!


" Merry Christmas & Happy New Year"

Thank you for your endorsement of my clarity in explaining my position.
Yes, I'm hoping to find some of my 'read, but forgotten title / author' from your lists. So nice to find a book enjoyed but returned many years ago to friends / family / libraries. Thanks for adding me back.
Congratulation for winning a free copy of "Healing, Romance & Revolution". Your copy will be shipped early next week. In the meantime I encourage you to visit our blog (http://healingromanceandrevolution.blogspot.com) with its 150 blog postings. Please enjoy the book and we look forward reading your favorable review on Librarything, Goodreads and Amazon.

Dennis and Carolyn Buckmaster
Hello. Thanks for my message. Love the name Mrs Gaskell.
Mine are Oli and Joey. :)
Hope we "meet" again.
Ruth
