About My Library
Reading and horses! The two constant obsessions of my life. OK--my family (young adult daughter and son), elderly golden retrieiver and a couple cats figure in there somewhere too.

I enjoy great mysteries, women's biographies and memoirs along with history, especially local history. And I'm trying to 'beef up' my knowledge of classical and world literature.

I love the tag clouds--both my own and looking at others' and considering how they reflect the interests of their owners.

I always have at least half a dozen books that I'm reading and my to-be-read mountain requires bottled Oxygen to get to the top. I've decided to add my TBR mountain to my LT catalog to eliminate buying doubles of interesting books and to give a better idea of my current interests.

About Me
I am a recently retired microbiologist (technician) in a research lab. I also raise Appaloosa horses, and, in the past, have had a small web based business of out-of-print and hard to find Appaloosa books. I worked as an out-of-print book searcher in college and still enjoy book scouting, unusual bindings and first editions. No web site at the current time.
