About My Library
In the 70's I read a lot of books that I checked out from the library down the street. I was a sponge for biographies and autobiographies, this explains my "Read but Unowned" list. If I wasn't reading a book, then I was reading an Archie Comic book, Right On magazine or KREAM magazine (I was into Rock during this time in my life) or writing in my diary.

I'm an avid collector of Fiction, Biographies, Books on/about Detroit and Memoirs about and/or written by Minorities. I've included books by Detroiters or Native Detroiters, like Mitch Albom and Loren D. Estleman. I began collecting in 1996. I prefer hardbacks to paperbacks. Even though I collect, I'm more interested in the content and not its' value. I shop mainly at Used and Bargain Bookstores and frequent local book sales that I find via www.booksalefinder.com


In the year 2019 I discovered the artful covers of UK editions. I have a few books both, US and UK editions in my collection listed in my library as duplicates. I opened a Bed & Breakfast in 2019 in which the built in bookshelves hold 70% of my personal collection of books, and continues to grow. In 2022 I started preparations to open a book Kiosk within an art center in the center of the downtown district in Marion, Alabama.

About Me

I cannot get enough of books. Besides the fact that I love to read them, I also collect them and treasure them. I buy them faster than I can read them. I attend many authors book signings and readings. I received my BS in Business Marketing and I'm looking for a way to combine my love for books, research, reading and promoting into a career.

In August 2019 I opened a Bed and Breakfast in Marion Alabama. I was able to display my books on the built-ins at www.BennettSuites.com.

Reading on my kindle app "Winds of the Storm" by Beverly Jenkins. Listening in audio - "Sing Her Name" by Rosalyn Story, and "Harlem Shuffle" by Colson Whitehead. On my TBR is: "The Ultimate Betrayal"(#12 in the Reverend Curtis Black Series) by Kimberla Lawson Roby, "Don't Cry For Me" by Daniel Black. I also won an ARC of, "The Scent of Burnt Flowers" by Blitz Bazawule, and "Dear Denise" by Lisa McNair.
