The books on my shelf do not necessarily reflect my reading tastes or interests. In the past, I found and released books of most genres.

I'm Sarah Coller, aka elizardbreath. I received that lovely moniker from my mom (BookCrosser Charlieshack) when I was about 7, as a play on my middle name, Elizabeth. I am a 44 year old wife of 25 years and mother of 9, 7 still at home. I have 4 boys and 5 girls aged 23 down to 10, and two baby grandchildren! My husband and I homeschool our kids, a job that is mainly mine since he works full time as a software programmer. I am a Whole Bible Believer. Please visit my YouTube channel, Torah Led Women, if you're interested in connecting with a community of others pursuing Yeshua. For the past 17 years of membership, I have formed wonderful friendships, experienced literature that I never would have picked up before, and learned a lot about the world outside of my own little spot on the map.
