Om migI am in my early 70s; a chemist by profession whose friends from high school on have been almost exclusively English or Psych majors. I have always read about 50/50 fiction/nonfiction with particular interests in people and what makes them tick, history, anthropology, and sociology. Upon retirement, I have taken up writing and with the encouragement of a weekly workshop wrote a memoir and a number of poems. I published a book, In the Beacon Light Lambertville, NJ, 1860 to 1900. It's a history of Lambertville, NJ as portrayed by the local newspaper of the time, The Lambertville Beacon. As such it depicts the everyday life of that time. A second book, A Great and Noble Work: The Volunteer Refreshment Saloons of Philadelphia During the Civil War, was published a couple of years ago.

Om mitt bibliotekThe library is a combination of my husband's and my interests. The cookbooks and psychotherapy books are his. Of the rest, he's read more than I since he's faster. We seldom both read the same book since we hear enough of each other's reading that we're more interested in reading something completely fresh and new. Naturally some books inspire reading by both.

Since downsizing in 2012, most of these books are no longer in our possession and are in the "Discard" category. New books are now mostly Kindle, Early Review, or from the library.
