Über meine Bibliothek
My library is very eclectic leaning heavily towards history and historical fiction. I read a lot of classics and especially like Hardy, the Brontes, and my favorite author, George Eliot.

I am a hopeless bibliophile for which there is no cure. I have accepted my disease and so have those close to me.

I have finally come to terms with my ereader and my real books. The ereader was necessary in my down-sizing scheme. I am at peace.

Every year I read Evangeline, the greatest love story ever written.

Über mich
I am a book reader, cook, gardener, traveler, history professor, mother of two grown sons and 7 grandchildren, whom I adore. I want to down-size most things in my life because to maintain them anymore is exhausting. I taught American History 1877-modern day, World History 1700-modern day to high schoolers for 20 years. I am also an adjunct professor at a local university where I teach Western Civilization and the Holocaust, a course for which I wrote the curriculum. I have earned a B.S. in Social Studies Education from The Ohio State University, a M.A. in Social Sciences with an emphasis on modern history from Ohio University. and a Ph.D. (ABD) in modern history from American University.

I have yearly tickets to the ballet and also play tenor sax in a community band. I used to play in the bell choir at church (b and b-), until the director fell ill. We haven't got another yet, but I'm anticipating!

I LOATHE negative people and negativity. I have come to believe that a negative person wishes to be that way and they want everyone else to be as miserable as they are. I avoid them like the plague.

I love to decorate, especially during the holidays. I have collected nativity scenes for about 40 years and display them all.
