About My Library
I have a large collection of paper books and don't own an e-book reader, although I used to occasionally listen to an audio book. I love the feel of books in my hands, sleuthing out a desired copy, and seeing them on my shelves brings me joy. All my old friends are there, and some new ones as well.
About Me
I read mostly international literature, some history, and memoirs; this year I am reading a lot of graphic novels too. In 2022 I am participating in the Asian Book Challenge, the Graphic Stories thread, the Reading Globally theme reads, Remembering Rebeccanyc, and the Holocaust Literature group.

JustJoey posted this on her thread, and I like the idea that every reader brings something different to the table, and what I bring today may be different that what I brought last time. Each reading is a new discovery.

You and I know too many different things, entertain too many different thoughts, hold too many different beliefs to see Pip - or any other character - in quite the same way. Same words, same pages. Different us. Sometimes different me. I find that my Pip today is not my Pip of yesterday. As I've changed over the years, I find that my thinking about characters has changed as well... -Thomas C.
