About My Library
Since nearly my entire library is on bookcrossing, I don't feel the need to use that feature here. Instead, I use LT for books I am reading or have read since joining LT. Any book finished will contain a small "review" of my thoughts on the book. I don't generally write expansive reviews both because of lack of time and I fear spoiling the plot for others. My "reviews" are intended only to remind me in the future what I thought of the book.
About Me
I'm the fourth of six children, most of whom are/were big readers. I grew up in a house surrounded by books and was always allowed to read whatever I pleased at any age. This has lead me to my having rather eclectic reading tastes. When I'm not reading, I'm an inveterate bookcrosser, working as a legal assistant for an international law firm in San Diego, going to the theater, museums, traveling, or wandering the beautiful County of San Diego.
