About My Library
I keep thinking it's quite lopsided, as I started by separating out and entering my science fiction and fantasy; I do have a lot of that, but also lean heavily toward mysteries, cookbooks, history, reference books, travel books (many of which I have because I used to proofread these and had copies given to me by the publisher--but I do, in fact, like to travel) and some odds and ends. Eventually it'll all be entered and this comment will be moot!






About Me
I'm a freelance writer/editor/proofreader/copy editor; I live in a small town in upstate NY, which can be a lovely area except for the five or six months of winter, which I hate more each year I endure it. Spring and fall are beautiful; summer is also lovely if sometimes humid; real estate is cheap, neighbors are great, local farmer's market is fabulous, choice of decent restaurants is nearly nonexistent. Good used bookstores are a bit of a drive. The local library is fairly good and belongs to a four-county system from which it will get books on request. I belong to a book club; I like the members much, much more than I like most of the books they pick to read.
