About meI am a community college economics professor with a lifelong passion for books and reading. I'm also a big movie buff and love many kinds of music, from classical to Celtic.
About my libraryI have resumed working on this after a lengthy hiatus. My goal is to eventually include everything in my personal library and to have rated as many of the books I have read as possible. Everything listed here is part of my personal library.
