About meI'm a reader, not a collector, but I keep books I really enjoy and know I will read again. I prefer paperbacks to hardcovers, read mostly ebooks using the Kindle app on my iPad, and listen to many audiobooks.

I like to read series books in order. I don't skip ahead and I hate spoilers. If I don't like a book, I don't finish it for the sake of finishing it -- I move on to another. I often have more than one book going at a time, as long as they are different genres.

I buy new and used books, online and at retail stores. I should own stock in I love Half Price Books stores and My husband is a big reader, too, and like many of you, our home is overflowing with books. We need more shelves!

About my libraryThese are mostly my historical mysteries. I also read (some) contemporary mysteries, historical novels, fantasies, adventure/thrillers, many non-fiction histories, and have seemingly endless shelves of reference books on everything from writing and editing to computer (Macintosh and web development, etc.) and nature field guides (mostly birds).

CAVEAT: I have NOT read all of the books in my list. There are many there that I'm waiting to acquire and/or that are on my TO BE READ list.
