About my libraryI have many volumes in the following subjects; George Washington and the America War for Independence, Aviation, The American Civil War, World War II, plus miscellaneous works on Natural History, Astronomy, Cosmology and history of technology. The listing of my library is of books that I may own now or of those that I have given away to the Bookthing of Baltimore Inc. (ww.bookthing.org) or by using wwwbookmooch.com.
I have limited storage space so I can afford to keep only those books which I would like to leave to my descendants, or read myself at when I get around to them. A book is of most value when someone is reading it, not just sitting on a shelf waiting for the owner to figure out a way to get it to another person who is interested in that subject. Public libraries have received so many donated books that some are refusing to accept any more.
