About my libraryI'm just getting started - I keep remembering books I've read or own but are in storage. This is my latest obsession :-)

I was a Park Ranger Naturalist in Yosemite for 10 years, and have been an outdoor/environmental educator, a botanist, an environmental consultant, and a science teacher, so I have a lot of science and natural history books relating to California and the West.

I've gone through phases of reading lots of "junk food books" like mysteries or science fiction or fantasy - some are quite hearty and not junk food at all, but some are merely guilty pleasures.

I've included "wishlist" books here, as well as "unread" books I own but haven't gotten around to reading yet (it's like money in the bank, baby!) so I haven't read all of these books. But there are a lot more I ~have~ read that I have yet to add, or even to remember.
