About meI was a bookstore buyer for an indie chain that folded under big-box bookstore pressures, but that was long ago. I spent almost twenty years overseas; now I am home to stay--perhaps--in the DC area.

I am a double bolter. First I was on LT, where I found my real world book. I was confused by the interface and wished for an LT app to add books, so I used my GR app and profile for a few years, though I always missed LT's more highly developed search capacities. Now I am back.

I love literary fiction, historical fiction, and history, though I won't say "no" to any genre except true crime and philosophy. I love audio books, too--very much so as I do a great deal of handwork.

About my libraryThese books are mostly from my paper catalogue that I have maintained since 1996, though I add an older book from time to time.
