About meI work in a library. For me, that's akin to being an alcoholic, and working in a liquor store.
About my libraryThere is a wide variety of subjects that interest me: ancient rome, boatbuilding, cryptography, languages, evolution, etc... My wife refers to me as a butterfly. No, not for my beautiful, graceful wings; but for my inability to maintain my interest in any one subject for a substantial length of time. I'm constantly fluttering around from one subject to the next, sampling the nectar from each. But is that so bad?
