About meHere's a fifty-something, mildly introverted, autodidact. I don't mind being a self-educated fool; it's rather liberating, actually, and vastly preferable to being a formally-educated one. Actually, I do have degrees in philosophy and humanities, but earn bread as an electrical engineer. Go figure! I do a bit of Zen meditation, writing, gaming, and of course... reading. My highest aspiration is to become nobody (which, I suppose if I took completely seriously, I wouldn't have written any of this horn-honking stuff). Ah well. It is a process...
About my libraryThese are the books I physically and currently own. So many more have passed through my hands, now absent. Anyway, ten or fifteen years ago, I closed off one corner of the basement and built a study. It's the quietest room in the house. The dogs and I go there to hang out, blog, play online, and read. I built a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf into one whole wall - a modest library by most standards - but once again it's about full. Stacks are appearing now. I like having books where I can see them versus packed away in boxes or closets. It's hard maintaining a minimalist thing when books are laying everywhere.
