About meWell, what can I say. I am a thirty-something man that loves books and constantly learning. Sometimes it feels as if I will never loose that wide-eyed curiosity of youth, which is perfectly fine with me. There is so much to learn out there that I am sure I will be busy for the rest of my life. I have a B.A. in History and a M.S. in Library and Information Science, and I am now wondering what my next degree should be while beginning my career surrounded by books and information.
About my libraryI absolutely adore my library, but I will be the first to admit that it could be bigger - growth is a good thing, right? My library is fairly evenly split between Fiction and Nonfiction and includes school books (with a complete set of the Library of Congress Subject Headings). While there is some variety, the core of my books are historical fiction and Greek and Roman histories. If anyone notices any glaring holes in my library, please let me know!
