About My Library

In the 70's I read a lot of books that I checked out from the library down the street. I was a sponge for biographies and autobiographies, this explains my "Read but Unowned" list. If I wasn't reading a book, then I was reading an Archie Comic book, Right On magazine or KREAM magazine (I was into Rock during this time in my life) or writing in my diary.

I'm an avid collector of Fiction, Biographies, Books on/about Detroit and Memoirs about and/or written by Minorities. I've included books by Detroiters or Native Detroiters, like Mitch Albom and Loren D. Estleman. I began collecting in 1996. I prefer hardbacks to paperbacks. Even though I collect, I'm more interested in the content and not its' value. I shop mainly at Used and Bargain Bookstores and frequent local book sales that I find via www.booksalefinder.com


In the year 2019 I discovered the artful covers of UK editions. I have a few books both, US and UK editions in my collection listed in my library as duplicates. I opened a Bed & Breakfast in 2019 in which the built in bookshelves hold 70% of my personal collection of books, and continues to grow. In 2022 I started preparations to open a book Kiosk within an art center in the center of the downtown district in Marion, Alabama.

I started a YouTube Channel @onnaday6689 on January 2022 in which I talk about books, journal making (DIY) projects and more.

About Me

I cannot get enough of books. Besides the fact that I love to read them, I also collect them and treasure them. I buy them faster thanI can read them. I attend many authors book signings and readings. I received my BS in Business Marketing and I'm looking for a way to combine my love for books, research, reading and promoting into a career.

In August 2019 I opened a Bed and Breakfast in Marion Alabama. I was able to display my books on the built-ins at www.BennettSuites.com.

I'm currently listening to "The Three Mothers" by Anna Malaika Tubbs, "Let Love Have The Last Word" by Common, and from my TBR Jar Pick: "Wahala" by Nikki May. On my TBR are: "A Right Worthy Woman" by Ruth P. Watson, "The First Ladies" by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray, and Marie Benedict. A Read-Soul-Lit read-along for July of "One Blood" by Denene Millner. Received 'A Good Woman' by Jalana Remy, eBook for review.
