About meI am a married, retired, mail-carrier
from the Midwest and I have a passion for reading, birds and the great outdoors. My love of books started at an early age. A family friend had handed me "The Light of the Western Stars" by Zane Grey. I was around ten years old and I was hopelessly hooked. This infatuation has continued, unabated, for over 50 years. I've been on Library Thing for over 13 years and it has changed my reading life in so many positive ways.

About my libraryI love all styles & genres of writing. I aim for above-average quality and with this lofty goal I am rarely disappointed! I especially enjoy crime fiction, literary fiction and non-fiction. I've read all the books in my library.
