About meI live in Portland, Oregon. It is a land of friendly progressive people, walkable and bikeable neighborhoods, off leash dog parks, great little restaurants and one-of-a-kind shops, gardening, and mild, if grey, and rainy winters. I am an avid reader who also loves to garden, thrift shop, talk to friendly strangers as I go about my day, walk to every place that can be walked to, take in stray dogs, hike and cross country ski and run, budget travel in colorful foreign lands, play Apples to Apples, take baths with elephants, and drive huge vehicles across the Antarctic ice shelf.
About my libraryMy library consists of the books I have read in recent years, along with others from longer ago that are favorites, and/or that I can remember having. I especially love memoirs about people who have lived with meaning, dealt with challenges in inspiring ways, helped others, who have lived heartful and inspiring lives, lived outside the box, and/or lived in foreign lands. I enjoy wonderful characters, books set in other cultures, beautiful writing and books that make me laugh. I like great relationship books too.
