About My Library
I buy books in tangents of authors or topics. The more I read the more I need. My bookshelves are a mess of double stacks and piles. Years of coordinating school used book sales and volunteering at book fairs, combined with an inability to pass up a library or rummage sale have tripled the size of my unread book pile. And now my kindle has ruined me, but at least there are fewer piles of books on the floor.

I love fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, historical fiction, non-fiction, memoir, science fiction, reference books and coffee table books. I also love books about books.

There are hundreds of beloved books from my past that public libraries own, not me, so I have left them unlisted. They know who they are.


About Me
I'm a lifelong compulsive reader with too many books and not enough time. I have a husband, 2 grown kids, and a huge furry dog. I am addicted to online libraries like the University of Michigan's Making of America Project, Yale's Avalon Project, The Gutenberg Project, Pennsylvania's Past Digital Bookshelf, The Oxford University Early Manuscripts. And now, thanks to LibraryThing, all these libraries to browse, reviews to read, books to add to my to be read list....
