My taste in books is eclectic. I take advantage of my local library so many of the books I've read are not reflected on my BC shelf. I enjoy stories set in other countries that take me out of the USA and into another culture. I’m very interested in art and artists. Period classics are great. I have two rescued ex-racing Greyhound dogs and I love animals in general so I'm drawn to good stories about animals. I like memoirs and biographies of interesting people - artists, historical figures, and some not-so-famous people that have a good story to tell. Go figure, I did say eclectic.

Christmas is my favorite holiday and I'm traditional about it even though it's usually 75 degrees/F here and everyone is wearing shorts and flip-flops. Always a real Christmas tree with vintage ornaments and newer ornaments that are treasured gifts from friends and Bookcrossers. Halloween is great fun too. I enjoy cooking and baking. Maybe I just enjoy eating good homemade food. I have some favorite recipes but I also like to try different things. I enjoy going to art museums and galleries. I browse antiques shops and thrift stores when I can, never know what I’ll find. When I have a bit of time I make glass bead jewelry and I'm hoping to learn soon to make my own chains and findings.
