She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain. ~ Louisa May Alcott

I live in southeastern Pennsylvania, near both Delaware and Maryland, and am currently an IT director for a large company. I'm married with 2 teenage daughters, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and a number of domestic ducks and geese. When I'm not reading, I tend my fruit & veg garden, and volunteer at a bird rescue & rehab center.

I am an avid reader and maintain my library on LibraryThing. I read mostly fiction: books by and about women, books by authors from outside the U.S., and classics. When I read non-fiction, it's usually memoirs or history. I like reading with a goal in mind whether that be a short-term reading challenge, or a longer-term project. I'm working on reading all Booker and Orange Prize winners.

In 2007 I started keeping a book journal here on LiveJournal. I write reviews of every book I read, and occasionally comment on other things related to books & reading.
