About My Library
My favorite type of book to read, and thus my largest collection, is literary fiction. My large cookbook collection reflects my love of cooking. Ditto for travel books. In fact, if you are looking to travel anywhere in the Rocky Mountain West, check out my Colorado Guides and Travel, Mountain West tags. I also enjoy the memoir genre, and I'm working to read more nonfiction and the classics that I have yet to read.

Because there is no way to separate collections, I've included my kids' favorite books in my library so I can keep track of them. We have many, many more children books in our house than the ones listed here, but these are the best of the best. I would recommend any of the children's books in my collection without hesitation.

After reading 78 books last year but not (quite) finishing the 999, I'm scaling back a bit for this year. Here is a link to my thread on the 1010 Category challenge:

About Me
I am a book fanatic! I love to read, collect, and share books. I get nervous when I don't have a book nearby! I have two young children who are well on their way as book lovers.

I am a writer of children's picture books and personal essays. Besides reading, my other hobbies include running, hiking, skiing, yoga, cooking, traveling and of course, writing. The photo in my profile was taken right in front of the Boulder Bookstore and cafe (listed in my favorites).
