I share my home with my book-loving husband, two book-loving children, and three cats, who are book-lovers when it comes to rubbing their cheeks on the corners, sitting on the very paragraph I'm trying to read, and curling up in my lap while I'm reading.
I will read just about anything, from cereal boxes to classics. My favorite genres are novels, mysteries, biographies, children's and young adults' books, gardening and craft books, and other nonfiction.
My other interests include all kinds of crafts, gardening, walking, writing, language, social justice issues, and the environment. I would live on tea and chocolate (fair trade and organic!) if I could.
I stumbled across Bookcrossing, and I joined right away, thinking it would help me reduce the number of books in my house. Ha! While I've ended up with even more books, I've ended up with more friends, too.
I release unwanted books given to me by others as well as my own books, so my shelf doesn't necessarily reflect my own taste.
