My Library

This page is devoted exclusively to my love of reading. Below you will find the titles of all the books currently in my possession. Books I get from the library might make a guest appearance towards the bottom, but I believe that you can tell a lot about a person from the books on their shelf.

  1. Niiiiiiiiiiiiice. Plus, this gives me an idea: I need to post my ever-expanding library on my blog. Cheers, Katie.

    • Gracias! When I move out into a townhouse or something, I am making a library with comfy reading chairs, antique lamps, and the amazing smell of old, loved books. Actually, my inheritance is my great grandparent’s library. I’m in absolutely no hurry to get those though. 🙂

  2. Great list. I need to read the art of war. I have it, just never got around to it. Definitely need some Twain on the that list, young lady! The professor can’t believe he isn’t listed! I could recommend some if you’re interested…
