Sobre mimI became an AVID reader in the 6th grade with the book The Mystery of the Green Cat. I also became an avid Dear Diary writer when I reached in and picked out a purple diary from the Christmas grab bag that same year. Both of these loves have stayed with me all my life, with the diary scribbling turning into journal entries. I still have that original diary, along with all others from over the years. I have not been blessed with children so my 2 Great Niece's ages 8 and 3 are my faux- children and hold my heart in their little hands. The 8 year old loves her books I'm thrilled to report. I am owned by the little guy in the picture above named Toto (after Dorothy's dog) He is almost 2 years old and continues to fascinate and amaze me on a daily basis.
Along with reading and writing I enjoy movies of every kind. My Mothers favorites were Musicals and Film Noir, so growing up I learned to love many classics. (I'm a collector of Wizard of Oz memorabilia -long story-and love all things Fred and Ginger) and I was actually named (Laura Gene) after the 1940's B&W movie "Laura" starring Gene Tierny - The hospital staff thought my Mom made a mistake in the spelling of Gene and decided to "correct" it to the more feminine Jean, thus I became Laura Jean (first name) L J for short.
I love swimming and yoga, and cooking (oh and eating too!!)
Sobre a minha bibliotecaI don't really know where to begin. My home is totally consumed with books. Pretty much every conceivable wall space has a bookcase of all different shapes and sizes snuggled up to it, with books lined up like sardines. I wouldn't have it any other way. My Niece always tells me "Aunt L J you know what you need?" I think to myself "Some additional rooms for more books" and she'll say "A library card" The books are organized by subject matter, with many areas of interest having multiple sections, as I run out of space. I enjoy true adventure stories, bio's and pretty much anything political. Also enjoy a great novel. I invite you all to take a moment and browse around. I'm not done cataloging all my books yet so more to come soon....
