I'm in awe of the Tattered Cover stores and the downtown library. They helped me feel a little less homesick.
I'm Jordan, a Boulder native (born here and never left). When I was younger, I nearly lived at the library, and I'm afraid the effects still show.
I'm a California native living in Denver. My boyfriend is a PhD student at UC Denver, so that's how we got here.
I read a lot of things - I used to work in bookstores, and I liked to challenge myself to read something from all the sections. Left to my own devices, my interests tend to fall into generalized fiction, nonfiction about history, and biographies.
I really started my library when we moved to Aspen. The local library had very few books then. Like Topsy, it's grown (both my personal library and the local library). What I've cataloged so far is mostly the research/picture library. With luck I'll get to the personal/reading library soon.
Thanks for the invite into the group. I'm obviously an avid reader, and I'm blessed to work in the publishing industry. My career has me consulting with major libraries in the West, I represent the world largest independent Audiobook publisher Recorded Books. As my profile picture indicates I have recent built an austere, yet formidable library. I live in the Roxborough neighborhood in Littleton, CO.
I live in NC, but have visited Colorado many times, and although I'm typically not a city kinda guy, I've always loved Denver.
I was recently introduced to several CO bookstores by a friend and was overwhelmed by them & the awesome downtown library. I'm happy to be part of this group - it makes me feel even more connected to the area.
BTW, great Colorado photo on the group page.
I'm Steve, living in Boulder. Oddly, like mhaley, I like to read.
I'm a school counselor working with at-risk kids in an alternative school, and I play outside every chance I get. I love hiking and snowboarding, or if I'm inside I love to read and knit. Kind of like a granny.
Nice to meet everyone!
I recently read The Meadow by James Galvin which takes place in Colorado, near the Wyoming border. It's a wonderful book!
Thank you for the invitation and for setting up the group, chanale!
I am a book addict and lately this is becoming a growing concern. There are so many books I want to read that I'm turning into an insomniac. This is not good. Must see a doctor.
Anyone else suffering from this addiction?
#17 There just has to be
I have lived in Colorado since 2003 and I like it better every year.
I love to read, and only list books I own on my library thing. I volunteer at the public library. :D
Also - hear lets dyslexia for it! (lets hear it for dyslexia!)
My 13 year old has recently become fascinated with Welsh. He's been finding video of people speaking Welsh and listening, and asking for Rosetta Stone.
I remember having the same fascination after reading Susan Cooper's The Grey King.
I'm also a writer, author, poet on and off for several decades and am writing full-time as of a few months ago. I've just self-published a poetry collection covering the last two decades - No Longer Dressed in Black as a Kindle ebook and am working on several stories and essays at the moment. You can check my website for more info: http://www.kacweb.com/poems/index.html or Amazon for my current works.
Of course I love reading, particularly short stories, my favorites being SF and mainstream/literary.
I've been reading the latest Pen/ O. Henry Awards 2012 and it seems to be particularly tasty -- A Birth in the Woods and Kindness being my favorites so far.
I moved to Colorado from Southern California 7 months ago and am finding it both exhilarating and exasperating (mostly because of the weather). It's taken me almost this long to get acclimated to the change in altitude and atmosphere (the air is much dryer than I'm used to, for example), and perhaps also the change in ambience from L.A., having lived in SoCal for 40 years, though the first week I was here I got my library card and started going weekly to the library, and that made me feel a bit more grounded. Also, a few LTers invited me to a meetup at The Tattered Cover a few months ago, and that was lovely and made me feel very welcome here indeed! Then, in January, I started volunteering at The Gabriel Foundation (a bird rescue organization) and doing yoga at a local gym a couple of times a week, and those two things seem to have helped me feel at home a lot too.
I'm a pretty omnivoracious reader with varied tastes in books. I'm also a bibliophile of sorts, though I'm trying to cull the books I will never read again, or use for reference, from my library collection. It's hard, though. When I moved, I managed to find about a couple dozen books to take to Goodwill. Out of over a thousand. Though I haven't actually taken them to Goodwill yet. Now I'm thinking I'll start a "Little Free Library" as soon as I settle (we will be looking for a new place when our lease here in Aurora is up in June). Might make it easier to give away books that way. Also more fun.
I've been a member of LT since 2006, and am currently part of the 75-Book Challenge Group, among others.
