My name is Monica.  I'm a research librarian and all around bookworm.  I live in northeast Texas with my husband who is also a book lover.  In my travels, I've managed to build quite a book collection, and I'm excited to talk to you about what I'm reading.

This blog will include reviews of books I'm reading as well as any other bookish things I like.  Occasionally, there may be posts about other interests of mine.

My reading tastes are varied--fiction, mystery, classics, biography, memoir, diaries, or basically, whatever strikes my fancy.  Some of my favorite authors are Willa Cather, Agatha Christie, Daphne du Maurier, Edith Wharton, Virginia Woolf, Deborah Crombie, and Wallace Stegner.

When I’m not working, reading or looking around a bookshop or a used book sale, I’m walking in the great outdoors, gardening, watching old movies or listening to music. I love travelling, and I also love all things British.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the Internet!

Feel free to say hello!
