About meI was one of those children who used to read under the covers with a flashlight. My favorites then were "The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew", "Little Women", and "Heidi". And of course, the Nancy Drew series. I always loved books. I especially loved the smell of library books. Living in a small, isolated desert town, books were my connection to the outside world. I used to dream about being able to step into the pages and enter their world. Books are still an important part of my life. There is nothing more exciting than opening the pages of a new book, entering into a different world, and living in it for a time. And it's usually a downer after I finish one until I start the next. My favorite book is usually the one I am reading at the time. I like to vary my reading and include non-fiction also. I enjoy this site and the opportunity it gives me to catalog the books I have and the books I have read, and to see what other people are reading.
About my libraryMy library is rather large and since I have moved, I have books in every room of the house and still have 44 boxes of unpacked books out in the garage. Have tried to part with a few, about four so far (books, not boxes).
