About My Library
I have a large collection of children's chapter and picture books (over 450 titles) and smaller collections of natural history, fantasy, and spiritual books.
About Me
I am a voracious reader since childhood. Currently, I read mostly children's literature as I'm an elementary school librarian, but also because I find it more satisfying than most "adult" literature. My favorite genre is fantasy, though I also love good realistic and historical fiction, mystery and adventure.
