About My Library
I have always collected books. I search for them at library discard sales, thrift stores, used book stores and occasionally garage sales. I try only to buy books I have read and know I love, otherwise the piles of books and money spent on them would go through the roof! I usually only keep books I know I will want to read over again. My dream for my library someday is to have sturdy, aesthetically pleasing bookshelves, in a room just for books. With a comfy chair by a window.

Some of my books are missing dust jackets. So occasionally I make my own, usually from collages of photographs clipped out of magazines. These books are tagged "Own Design".
About Me
Mother to two kids, some fishes and a cat. Also an avid gardener. When I'm not taking care of them, I squeeze in time to read (and hunt for more books to read). I also enjoy scrabble games, jigsaw puzzles, and cooking stuff I've grown.
