About meReading always has been nearly as dear as breathing to me. I lean toward non-fiction and especially studies of the past, but also enjoy historical novels and stories ... which carry their readers to places far-removed.
About my libraryMy library has grown with me, moved with me and has begun to reach toward the next generation of partakers.
