My name is Nancy. I am a stay at home mom of three children and I am married to the most amazing man. He puts up with me, what else can I say except that he’s pretty amazing! I ♥ books – I used to get into so much trouble as a kid because my nose was always in a book. Who wouldn’t prefer reading to doing household chores? Huh? Unfortunately, that mindset hasn’t changed much for me as an adult. I still prefer reading over chores. Some other interests I have include photography. I love it (as a hobby) and constantly strive to improve my skills. I also dabble in Photoshop and if I had to do my life all over again, I so would have studied graphic design in college. Heck, I would have also studied photography. Two of my favorite hobbies – how fun would college have been taking classes where I was actually interested in the topic!
When I am not playing around with my kids, hubby, camera, or Photoshop (and admittedly watching reality tv) you bet you can find me with a book. I have a growing library in my house – I just love the look, smell and touch of books and want my children to grow up feeling the same way. So, what better way than to have a library in our home? I frequent used book stores, library sales, online stores and big box stores for books. My feeling is, you can never have too many books! (If I have to move to a smaller place, I am in so much trouble! I’d have to make sure I had a spare bedroom just for my library.) I also have an eReader (Nook) and find that, while nothing replaces the feel of a good book in my hands, the eReader really has some practicality in my life. The compactness of it is a major plus.
I decided to start a blog posting reviews of books I’ve read mainly because I want to document my books for my friends and my kids. When my kids are old enough to read some of the content I have, I want to be able to reccommend titles to them and well my memory isn’t what it used to be. So, what better way than to have a journal of sorts for the books I’ve read. 🙂
