About meI have a bachelor's degree in history, and I'm known for my addiction to books. I go book hunting almost twice a month, and will often walk away with four or more at a time. I'm actually running out of space to put them! But mind you, I don't just buy any books for the sake of buying them. No, I read all the books I buy, although it is hard to keep up with my spending. After all, you should read what satisfies your interests and curiosity, instead of letting others dictate your tastes. One mustn't limit oneself to what one's "told" to read, for the field of literature is endless!
About my libraryI currently own 965 books: Oldest published: 1817
