Sobre Minha Biblioteca
The books in this library are books that we actually own or have actually read (i.e. borrowed from a friend or checked out from the library). We have amazon.com for our wish list.

My books are tagged sc (for socialchild) and hers are tagged ks (for kithseeker). Where there is a dispute over who's book it is, you might find both tags. There are also children's books that would seem to belong to our kids, but whether or not they will get them when they grow up (if they will want them) is an open question. We had loads of children's books before we had any kids.

Most of the psychology and counseling books are from when I was in school in the late 80s and early 90s so they are a little dated. There are also lots of science fiction/fantasy books (some are first edition or first book club edition from the '50s that I got from my dad), and they represent my favorite genre. Almost all of the rest are books I've read and reference material I collected as a result of my English degrees.

The history and biography books are mainly my wife's, although there are a few that are mine. She has a lot of these kinds of books that are old old. Those are fun.

About Me
When I was in the 7th grade, I had a science teacher who taught me how to read for pleasure. I had always been an advanced reader--in the fifth grade I was reading at the 12th grade level--but I rarely read or the simple joy of it. Mr. Brakefield taught me how to go into the story, how to live it. So when Bilbo is trudging along with the dwarfs in the rain on the way to places unknown, I was there with him, cold and wet, tired and hungry.

I love reading and discussing what I've read so much that some 15 years after finishing college and graduate school (I am a counselor), I went back to school and finished a BA and MA in English. For my own enjoyment. Fortunately I work for a college where they allow you to do that sort of thing (and let you do it tuition free).

I read mostly science fiction, fantasy, and 19th and 20h century novels, but I'm open for just about anything that is well-written and has a good story.
