More of Sheila's books…
“Most people either love or hate old libraries. To some, a room like this--dim, high-ceilinged, dusty, smelling of old paper and crumbling leather--would be oppressive, a place to flee from in search of sun and air. To others, like me, it was a wonderful cave filled with unimaginable treasures and unexpected treats. I always found myself inhaling deeply when I entered the stacks, as if trying to absorb part of them into my bloodstream.”
Sheila Connolly, Fundraising the Dead

“That was the problem with having a real job: no time to do all the other interesting things in the world.”
Sheila Connolly, Relatively Dead
