About meA love of books took hold of me early in life, jump-starting my journey through the vast universes of the mind. I was taught to read at age 2 and once I got going, I could never stop. The way human beings store and pass on information is incredible to me, from cuneiform tablets to oral traditions to the internet. This is what enables us to succeed as a society, to constantly build upon the achievements of our ancestors, and I am constantly in awe of the myriad of ways we have found to do so.
About my libraryThe books I have cataloged here represent my current collection and this is therefore not a full listing of books I have read in my lifetime. (Boy, would that ever be a big project!) When I give a volume away, I remove it from my catalog. Hundreds of books have passed through my hands and gone on to new readers but I cannot resist keeping most that I acquire.
