About meAvid reader. I am working my way up through the Western canon of literature, philosophy, science beginning with Gilgamesh. Currently up to 1954. I am also working through Indian, Chinese, Islamic and Japanese canons.
About my libraryI have over 1300 books, mostly hardcover. I am rapidly running out of space on my book shelves.
