About My Library
I've been building my book collection since childhood, and it includes many of my own childhood favorites (stored by my mom for many years before I reclaimed them) as well as my own purchases and many titles inherited from my dad. I freely admit have a book addiction, and letting me loose in a bookstore is dangerous to both my pocketbook and my sense of time.
About Me
I've been a book fiend since I first learned to unravel the mysteries of the written word around the age of four. I started using both the school and public libraries at age five, and made a habit of approaching the public library's summer reading program each year as a challenge in which my goal was to top my own book total from the previous year. I don't have as much time to read now as I did back then, but I still love books and once they fall into my hands I am loath to give them up, no matter how much I may have disliked their plots or contents.
