About meI have been an avid reader most of my life and simply cannot imagine a world without books. I will pick up any book that intrigues me (yes, I can be initially drawn to a book by the artwork on the cover) and I am always open to new authors. I can lose myself for hours browsing the shelves and book piles in a bookstore and have resigned myself to the fact that I will never find the time to read all the books that I want to read.... but that is not going to stop me from trying!

About my libraryPredominantly fiction with some non-fiction thrown in. This library represents books I have finished reading as of the start of 2008, as well as books I own that are part of my ever growing TBR pile. With the unveiling of Collections, I have added the more memorable books read and owned prior to 2008. Books discarded unfinished will now comprise the Abandoned collection of my library, to remind me of the clunkers as well.
