About My Library

My collection is pretty eclectic, mostly fiction, my preference, but non-fiction too, biographies, references, art, history, crafts. It's a living thing, always growing, often changing here and there, I love sharing and comparing my books with friends and family.

About Me
I love reading and finding new books through discussions here on LibraryThing, and talking with my friends. I also enjoy spending time with my family, knitting, volunteering at our local community theatre and playing with my dog Ash.

I’m retired now and love spending time each day with my books. I have so many TBRs that I’ll never have to worry about running out of something to read.


I keep books because I love them and want to read them again, because they offer fond memories of who gave them to me or who owned them before me, for reference. My books ground me.

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity...we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access reassurance." A.E. Newton

"A well composed book is a magic carpet on which we are wafted to a world that we cannot enter any other way." Caroline Gordon

"Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book." Unknown
