I love to read, and my house shows. I have bookshelves in every room in the house. Thankfully, my husband shares my love so we feed this addiction together. Sharing a book with others is almost as good as enjoying the book myself.

I'm often asked how I find so many good books. I have learned a lot from spending time at book lists and reviews on the web and from book-loving friends. Once you have the titles and authors of good books in your head, it is easier to peruse the book tables at a used book sale and find treasures to take home.

This page is my attempt at sharing some of my favorite books with you.
