About meMiddle aged husband, dog parent, government worker by day, musician by night.
About my libraryI tend toward escapist fiction & graphic novels, with a smattering of non-fiction. I get my fix about equally between local independent bookstores and the Berkeley Public Library (and rarely, online buying).
