About meI'm a librarian working in the North Carolina Community College system. I'm a married, 40-something mother of two boys (20 and 18). Besides my obsession with books, I love to knit, scrapbook, and enjoy the outdoors.

About my libraryI have a wide variety of books in my personal library, but I definitely prefer fiction over non-fiction. However, I enjoy a good memoir now and then.
My favorite aspects of a book -- language and setting, which explains my fascination with southern fiction. In most books by southern authors, the setting almost becomes another character in the novel. If I'm familiar with the setting, even better!!
