About meAmerican male in his fifties, very happily married, proud father of two daughters. I'm originally from the New York/New Jersey area, but I lived in the Carolinas for eight years and have resided near Chicago since 2005. Besides reading I enjoy travel, astronomy, and music. Betelgeuse (pronounced BET-el-jooz or BEET-el-jooz) is a star found in the constellation Orion.

About my libraryI have 1,100+ hardcovers and paperbacks in my personal study, and about 80 Kindle e-books. Most of my library is comprised of history, biographies, and the classics, but I am also fond of adventure novels and science fiction. I usually read a book every week or so, and once I've finished something I give it a rating in LibraryThing. Two books with the same rating aren't necessarily of comparable literary quality -- I might award five stars to a Tolstoy novel and five stars to a pulp fiction classic, because I appreciate them both for what they are.
