About me"Two things will affect you most in the next ten years: the people you meet and the books you read" - Howard Hendricks (Dallas Seminary)

Not much to say about me. Mid-Western, husband, father, employee, reader, teacher, drummer, computer geek, sinner saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. I love to read. I used to hate it. When God rescued me from sin and death the first and most obvious change was a love for reading. The Scriptures first, then books that help me understand the Scriptures second. After that, I'm interested in military works being veteran myself. I also enjoy reading stories that I read or were read to me as a child. I try to give books away to fight off the temptation to love them too much. Besides, it's fun to forget about the ones you've given away and when you remember them you can add them to LibraryThing!

About my libraryMany of my books I purchased. Rarely ever do I buy new. I've purchased most from or Amazon used. I try to only buy when I'm done reading what I have. This isn't going very well. Anyone else struggle with that? I'm not talking about reading reference works cover to cover, I understand those are long term investments.
