I'll find some, should be easy, I see them all the time. But, she goes to the bottom of a very large stack!

I love it when I'm overwhelmed with books.

In the 60s and 70s I belonged to the Doubleday Book Clubs, before it became too expensive.

When we were moving in 1975, I donated most of my books to the local library. It was over 1,000 books! It was a really good tax deduction too. So I averaged 100 books for each year, and that didn't take into account the ones I didn't donate like my Literary Guild books and cookbooks.

When in Jr. High School I had the opportunity to work in the library instead of Homeroom. It was wonderful, and learning to check books in and out and return books to their proper place on the shelves was good practice for my future in office work. Filing, always filing.

I spent oodles of time in the Library in High School, working. My absolute most favorite jobs were working in bookstores. Mom was the Textbook Manager at a college bookstore in the Denver area. I would go into work with her and happily shelve, face and dust the books. And this was a few years ago, her boss was always trying to hire me. I'd just laugh and tell him I was on vacation. He said I worked harder on vacation than his hired employees did on the clock.

I finished the Kathy Reichs book, and although I do have another one, I'm starting the Tami Hoag. 53X pages, in the new taller book format. I do love a big, thick, juicy book!
