About meI'm a compulsive reader, have been all my life. And when I couldn't find something I wanted to read, I started writing what I wanted to read. So now I have shelves of books (none of them mine yet) and piles of unpublished manuscripts.

About my libraryIn 2008,I had to pack my library away. Now I am unpacking it, sorting it, re-reading books and (need I say?) adding to it. I am finding new books, new authors while at the same time, re-reading old and favorite authors. I am also weeding out because the house can hold so many books without adding on.
Currently reading (or **re-reading)

Let me see if I can do better this year in my reading. I'm hardly holding up as a compulsive reader. Maybe my posting needs improving. But 2015 is starting off well:
