About memy folly >>> Here

I'm an avid reader as well as collector, which means I am constantly torn between preserving books and using them. I'm a musician, parent, and work as an environmental engineer to pay the bills.

About my libraryPlease feel free to leave me a polite, private message if you find any errors in the entries in my catalog. Between errors in auto-load data sources and my own typos, there are bound to be mistakes, and the more we weed out from our catalogues, the better the LT database is.

My Library? It's all over the map and all over the house. Lot's of history and historical novels, but probably 1/3 fiction of some form. Six shelves of poetry - more than I can ever read, but I can read some from every volume before time runs out. A large number of reference works (history, literature, and language) because my interest in books and reading is also an interest in history and words.
