About meI am a 29 year old bibliophile, author, and artist. My dad taught me to read (mainly to prove to my mother that he could do it) by the time I was 4 and created a monster. This is our combined library, collected in our nearly ten years of marriage, but I claim all books as mine. Yes, I'm a woman and therefore allowed. Remember: what is his is mine and what is mine is mine.

I will apologize here for being unabashedly silly. My parents worked very hard at warping me and I will not disappoint them. ;) I am a mom of three kids, three dogs, two cats and two Diamond doves, so if I were not a bit unconventional I would become absolutely insane. Most people view me with a mixture of awe and terror, and I'm fine with that. Gawk on!

About my libraryMy library is very diverse and shows my personality fairly well - 85% fiction, touches of art and color, random nonsense, and the rest are books on spirituality. The kids' library leans heavily towards 95% fiction. I have read nearly every book in the house and I love comparing writing styles and storylines. I am very OCD - if I read a book, I must own it no matter what I thought of it and no one is ever allowed to borrow my books.

These are all books I own. I do not wishlist books on LibraryThing because I will forget what I own and tear the house apart when I can't find it. Cyndi isn't fun when she's angry. Let's keep Cyndi calm.

I have this hobby of buying large lots of books in great condition from yard sales, estate sales, and the local Goodwills and keeping the ones I want. The ones I don't want are listed on This hobby makes my entire family crazy but makes me a very happy girl! I've found many rare and antique books this way, like an inscribed copy of Tarzan and the Ant Men from 1924. *gloats*

If it came down to the books or the kids, I'd have to give that some thought.
