Site design selection
The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meCollectively, we are: engineers, geeks, musicians, artists, quilters, model railroaders, gamers, unpublished authors, knitters, cat people, New Englanders (Yankees, in the technical sense), and carpenters (of necessity--bookshelves have to come from somewhere). When we moved in together we had to build a second story on the house to hold all these books.
About my libraryOur personal collection is a little over-weighted towards fiction, relative to our reading habits. Historically we've tended to borrow non-fiction from the public library, because non-fiction usually comes in hardcovers--and, in our younger and poorer days, we'd rather have gotten three paperbacks than one hardback.
