My goodness, haven't been here for years it looks like. The Newf in the picture has now moved on to the next state of being, but she was one of my favorites. Still have way too many books and suspect quite a few listed here have moved on in their journey. I'm planning on retiring in a few months, maybe I can spend some time getting this shelf back in order.
The picture is of my Newfoundland, Tasha, in her favorite place - a pick-up truck.
Pithy saying of the day: A positive attitude may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. - Herm Albright
Both of the OBCZ's in State College have closed but I still have plenty of books and supplies so if anyone has any ideas just PM me.
Very appropriate quote (came with one of my word of the day e-mails):
"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum...When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold." Henry Miller -novelist
And another one: "In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." Mortimer J. Adler - philosopher, educator and author.
Personal Stuff: I now own one Newfoundland dog (big 120-140 pound waterdogs), Jack and the accidental addition - a Great Pyrenees named Leon and two housecats, Zaphod and Beeblebrox and far, far too many books but I just can't help myself. We recently had customized floor to ceiling bookshelves built for our spare bedroom to deal with all the books and they are already full and overflowing.

I am happy to share books that are set as available by me but I prefer to trade or be re-imbursed the cost of postage (I have a PayPal account). However, I'm not beyond doing a RABCK for a book someone really wants but make a good case to me. I would request that my books be passed on eventually since that's what I'm here for. If you plan to make a the book part of your Private Collection let me know. It doesn't necessarily mean I won't trade you the book since it depends on a lot of things, but I don't want books I intended to travel to be PC'd. I can afford to do some long distance shipping and like the thought of distributing my books far and wide.
