Bosnia National Library

"I have a collection of bookmarks from places that I've seen or traveled. One of my bookmarks, which I bought in Belgrade, Serbia, has a pair of traditional peasant shoes attached to it."

What I do when I'm not in the library:
For vacations, I enjoy small group tours in Europe that explore a country or a region in depth.  My last one was a two week tour of the UK and Ireland. I have a collection of bookmarks from places that I've seen or traveled.  One of my bookmarks, which I bought in Belgrade, Serbia, has a pair of traditional peasant shoes attached to it. I also love creative writing, and reading, of course!

The last thing I read: The Devil's Slave by Tracy Borman  (The second novel in the Frances Gorges series)
