About My Library
My library is rather large and since I have moved, I have books in every room of the house and still have 44 boxes of unpacked books out in the garage. Have tried to part with a few, about four so far (books, not boxes).
About Me
I was one of those children who used to read under the covers with a flashlight. My favorites then were "The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew", "Little Women", and "Heidi". And of course, the Nancy Drew series. I always loved books. I especially loved the smell of library books. Living in a small, isolated desert town, books were my connection to the outside world. I used to dream about being able to step into the pages and enter their world. Books are still an important part of my life. There is nothing more exciting than opening the pages of a new book, entering into a different world, and living in it for a time. And it's usually a downer after I finish one until I start the next. My favorite book is usually the one I am reading at the time. I like to vary my reading and include non-fiction also. I enjoy this site and the opportunity it gives me to catalog the books I have and the books I have read, and to see what other people are reading.
In the past, I thought it was a waste of time to reread a book with so many more out there, but have found that it's interesting to reread certain books because my perspective has changed over time. So many books, so little time.
My other hobbies are genealogy, gardening, hiking and quilting, astronomy, birding, rockhounding, travel, photography and have an amateur radio license (KD7CWC).
I love animals and currently have three lovable dogs, two demanding feral cats, and two jabbering parakeets.
I am 66 years old, retired from the airlines and am a CASA volunteer. Am thinking about returning to college but still can't decide what I want to be when I grow up. Maybe I just won't grow up!So now I just take classes for fun, like Meterology,Geology, Literary Criticism, and Writing.
