About meI 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, watching old movies, and playing with my dog Pippin.

We are a military family and have moved many times across Canada and each time the movers complain about all the books, it's definitely the constant family story. I always feel like we're finally home when all my books are unpacked and sorted out.

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, or to up my count on LibraryThing ;-)

"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

About my libraryMy collection is pretty eclectic, mostly fiction, my preference, but non-fiction too, biographies, references, art, history, crafts. Before the advent of collections, all the books catalogued were physically in my library. Before the advent of LibraryThing most I'd read. Now you can see I have an extensive Wish List collection and an equally extensive To Read collection. It's a living thing, always growing, sharing and comparing with friends and family.
