About meI'm a retired university professor (physical chemistry) with a deep interest in all areas of science. I try to travel to places that feed those interests, and use photography as a way of connecting with the natural world (see my photos on smugmug - link below - if you're interested). Music, live or recorded, is a cherished source of entertainment.
About my libraryMy library, once it is completed here on LibraryThing, will reflect wide-ranging interests in the classics of English literature, poetry, history, historical fiction, science, travel, mystery/detection fiction, and miscellaneous fiction in other genres by authors I particular like. I occasionally read fantasy or science fiction, but don't consider that an area of concentration for my library.
