About meThe older I get, the more I try to hide from the extroverts.

One of my biggest pleasures in life is opening a new book.

I live in the sticks on 8 acres with my husband and two cats.

Our 24-year old daughter lives in Wilmington NC and works for a house-cleaning service and loves it.

I retired on January 29, 2016. My primary goal? Get to the point where I'm bored, whether that takes 6 months or 6 years. Seriously, there are things I want to do around the house that have been building up since daughter was born, books to read, time to waste, sleep to catch up on, museums to visit, etc. and etc. As of August 2017, after 19 months, I'm nowhere close to being bored.

It's not a day if I haven't had a chance to read. I am always looking for new authors and areas of interest. I tend more to fiction than non-fiction but still probably read more non-fiction than most.

About my libraryExcept for 9 books that I keep in LT to keep the Early Reviewer Gods happy, every book in my library is somewhere on a shelf in my house. I only use this LT account for my cataloged library.

So. What I own is eclectic. Shabby, brand new. Big, little. Straight, gay. Kid books, grown up books. Fiction, nonfiction, reference, old family Bibles, self-published books of poetry by friends of the family, and my grandmother's records book.

My collection is a combination of what I love to read and books I've inherited from family members. Some books I look at and say "Where did YOU come from?" Maybe they just migrate in.

I'm fortunate to have a husband who knows how important books are to me. The Library is 2 walls of floor to ceiling books. There are shelves upstairs in the parlour and shelves in the sunroom. I've just recently co-opted my daughter's playroom (and its shelves); henceforth to be called Karen's Retreat. Being surrounded by books is very important to me.
