About meI'm middle-aged, married, and 7 times a grandfather. Books have been my friends, my retreats, my confidants, my teachers, and my comforters all my life. I wouldn't recognize myself without one (and neither would anyone I know!). And I'm proud to say that nearly all my grandchildren are readers, too!

About my libraryIt's extensive (tho some folks' here on LT make mine look paltry by comparison!). I prefer to own books that I enjoy, preferably in hardback so they'll last longer. I often share & recommend items from my library to friends & family. I also spread some of them around thru The covers I show are almost always the editions I own -- I even hunt down & upload cover art from the web to get them right! And I'm also cataloging my wife's books here -- she reads as much as I do.

I originally read the serialized version of this novel in Analog back in the 1970s. I only purchased this paperback for the Kelly Freas cover. I didn't remember the story so I reread it. After reading it, I still don't remember the serial. The novel was alright, nothing great.
You know you have more than one book with a 'Freas cover' (one of your tags). I am the only other LTer who uses that tag.
Hi BookDoc16.
Great job with your library! I have enjoyed going through it looking for reads. I also appreciated being able to sort your books according to their "starred" number rating. Ague
