About meI confess to being addicted to collecting and reading books of a wide variety. Favorites are history and travel (both fiction and nonfiction) books, including antiquarium books, relating to countries I know best--especially Australia, India and Pakistan, Mexico, and anglophone countries of Africa. I also collect books on the British Empire (the good and the bad), agricultural and food history in developing countries, and the history of science.

About my libraryI have a collection of about 2000 books, only hard backs, mostly organized by country. About one third are antiquarian dating from the late 19th century. I also have a nice collection of books about the history of specific foods.
