About meI became an avid reader before I started first grade and the habit has grown over the years. I can't imagine how anyone can be a non-reader in an age when movies and television have set such low standards. I was born with the "collector gene" and, when I really admire and enjoy an author, I feel the urge to be a completist and want to own everything they've written. This habit has rewarded me in the past because I now own some nice first editions that have appreciated in value very nicely...but they won't be sold because I plan to give my granddaughter the library someday.
About my libraryThe size of my library is limited only by a lack of shelf space (and cash). I've even built shelves inside some of the lesser used closets in the house but it's a constant battle to find space for new books. I'm a big fan and admirer of Joyce Carol Oates, Larry McMurtry, Ruth Rendell, James Lee Burke, Elmer Kelton and writers of Civil War history. My library largely reflects that fact.
