About meI'm a practicing librarian and professionally-trained but avocational historian. Having "a Veblensque skepticism of capitalism's moral moorings" (R. S. Hewett), I enjoy societal critiques. Don't read much fiction(except Richard Powers).
About my libraryI buy books that really interest me or that I cannot easily obtain from academic libraries in my area. Some of these books I've had since undergrad days quite a long time ago. The tag DNO means I have read this book cover to cover but do not own a copy.
