A propos de ma bibliothèque
Except for 19 books that I keep in LT to keep the Early Reviewer Gods happy but don't physically own, every book in my library is somewhere on a shelf in my house. I only use this LT account for my cataloged library.

So. What I own is eclectic. Shabby, brand new. Big, little. Straight, gay. Kid books, grown up books. Fiction, nonfiction, reference, old family Bibles, self-published books of poetry by friends of the family, and my grandmother's records book.

My collection is a combination of what I love to read and books I've inherited from family members. Some books I look at and say "Where did YOU come from?" Maybe they just migrate in.

I'm fortunate to have a husband who knows how important books are to me. The Library is 2 walls of floor to ceiling books. There are shelves upstairs in the parlour, shelves in the sunroom, shelves in daughter's former rec room/currently Karen's Retreat. And I just co-opted one bookshelf in my husband's moribund Media Room. Being surrounded by books is very important to me. In addition to being a bibliophile, I am a bibliomaniac.
A propos de moi
The older I get, the more I try to hide from the extroverts.

One of my biggest pleasures in life is opening a new book.

I live in the sticks on 8 acres with my husband, our 15-year old kitty Inara Starbuck and 'new' kitties Zoe Rose, 3, and Washburne Ryder, 2.

Our 28-year old daughter relocated to Asheville, NC last May and recently switched jobs.

I retired on January 29, 2016. I'm not bored yet and don't plan on being any time soon. Too many books, too many fun things to do. I'm recovering from a major heart attack last November and in cardio rehab for another 4 weeks or so, 3 times a week.

And, finally, it's not a day if I haven't had a chance to read. I am always looking for new authors and areas of interest.
