About My Library

This library consists of books I've read (tagged by year), or plan to read (tagged "tbr"). I don't own all of the books listed, and there are many in my home that I haven't cataloged. I try to review every book I read.

I track and talk about my reading in the 2024 75 Books Challenge group:

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7

my Wiki Page is an archive of links to personal threads from a variety of LT groups and group reads, past & present.

About Me

I live in Purcellville, Virginia and am married with 2 adult daughters. My husband Chris and I are both retired, and spend a lot of our time on projects in and around our 1791 farmhouse and gardens. We are both avid readers as well. I also enjoy knitting, weaving, gardening, cooking/baking, and music of just about any genre.


I read mostly fiction and especially enjoy books by and about women, prizewinners, and classics (including Virago Modern Classics & Persephone Classics). I also enjoy intelligent, well-written mystery and suspense novels. I don't read as much non-fiction as I should but definitely appreciate narrative non-fiction and memoirs.
