About meFluent in German, Spanish, French.
I also have a strong interest in genealogy. My dog Bella (see picture) is a source of joy in my life.

About my libraryMy library's strong points are atlases, history, religion, international relations, genocide studies, and genealogy related books. Historical atlases are a particular vice. In the history field, my library is strongest in ancient Greece & Rome, medieval and modern Europe, Latin America, and the US South.
I also have a pretty excellent and growing collection of genealogy books related to the Pfalz (Palatinate) region of Germany, certain regions of Switzerland, and Colombia.
My library is pretty deficient in fiction.
Oh yeah, and all the books listed here are actually in my library, as opposed to being books that I'd like to own.
