About My Library
I recently remodeled my house to add more bookcases but somehow my books filled them as soon as they were constructed and, though I ran out of walls on which to put more shelves, the books continued to procreate uncontrollably. My goal is to outlive all the unread ones. T'is a hopeless addiction, this thing for books. Sigh.

I would rather read than sleep and will read the back of a cereal box if forced to. Most of my books are non-fiction -- politics, medicine, memoirs, and, my favorite, psychopathic serial killers and other sociopaths. Much to my chagrin, I'm beginning to acquire a taste for well-written chic lit; it clears the cobwebs from my brain. I ardently shun books about science fiction, fantasy, and the supernatural (unless it's to debunk it), though I hold a special place for books like The Lovely Bones, stories so exquisite they live on in me subliminally.

About Me
I have a Juris Doctor degree and work for a very large global electronic information provider in the Midwest. I grew up in in Westchester County, New York, and still dream about my house there. I have four grown children dedicated to collecting more professional degrees than I have but at least they're self-supporting (mostly) and living away from home, and they have provided me with, so far, eight wonderful grandchildren. And I'm only 25 . . . . (I wish)
