Read a thousand books and words will flow like a river.
Lisa See

It probably comes as no surprise that I am obsessed with books. Piles of them fill my home and walking around with no lights means risking tripping over a stack of them. And yet, there are never enough! I keep rare books and the ones that have inscriptions.  The rest are donated to charity after I finish reading them.

If you wish to send me a book, here is my reading wish list. Books not on this list are welcome as well! Contact me for my shipping address. Please understand I can’t promise to read them in a timely manner. Sometimes life keeps me busy, sometimes I’m catching up on the books I already have.
