About My Library
I'm kind of over keeping a lot of books - I have invested a fair amount of time in trying to read and get rid of books on my shelves. Now I'm a read-and-dispose-of type of reader. Moving a lot helps with the motivation.

Unless it's specifically tagged with "unread" or "unfinished," I've read it.

About Me
I spent years working in bookstores. I would have a "to be read" list that is ridiculously long, but I no longer really keep a list. I'd read more, but I have too many other things I want to do as well!

One quirk about my reading: somewhere along about 2012/2013, I decided not to read reviews for books I haven't read. I also don't read the backs of books or other summaries. I practice a sort of "book roulette" for what I read that's not on a list - I go by author, or how many times I've seen the book title come up, or *gasp* the cover.

Things I enjoy doing when I'm not reading - drawing, taking photographs, knitting, cross-stitching, crocheting, and watching tennis, soccer, and I used to be a football fan but with all the brain-injury issues in the sport I chose to stop watching it; I don't want to support that.


You can find my art and photography in a few places - Zazzle (http://zazzle.com/UrsulaRodgersArt) has a selection of postcards, and my photography and art are also on Redbubble (http://redbubble.com/people/ursularodgers/portfolio).
