About meP. W. Haile is librarian at Clemson Montessori School, Clemson, SC.

J. M. Haile is writer, editor, designer, and publisher at Macatea Productions,

The above photo is of J. M. and P. W. long, long ago in a front yard far, far away.

About my libraryLooking at all of our tags, one can see that the library contains a large amount of genre fiction and science of all kinds. There is also a smattering of many other subjects as we both have an omnivorous taste in reading materials. This represents thirty-five years of collecting together and has survived numerous moves.

Ratings and reviews: These are primarily the opinion of pwh. As I have added books, I've come across a few that I wanted to say something about and so wrote a short review. If I only want to say that I think it is an excellent example of its type then it received a rating. Therefore my average rating is high but only a small number of books have received ratings at this point.

More reviews (by jmh) of recently published, nonfiction books are posted at

The Currently Reading collection is really pwh's RECENTLY Read books and are mostly read in conjunction with her 13 in 13 Challenge.
