About meI have been gathering books since I was a little kid. I even went so far as to hide a bookcase in my closet, behind clothes, after my dad said, 'No more bookcases!' He eventually found it.




Fortunately I have a very understanding wife. This has allowed my library to grow with no end in sight with shelf space of nearly .2 miles. When we go on vacations we follow a guide to used bookstores, not a guide to tourist spots.
