About meFormer aeronautical engineer and wannabe renaissance man. Towards that end I'm currently studying for a PhD in the History of Technology.
About my libraryMy aim is to try and add most of my books to this library, although I'm concentrating mainly on my specialist tomes for the moment; it's somewhat of a slow process. As I am now an academic-in-training this collection is morphing from a personal library to (part of) a working library; once I'm done adding all my current books I expect to add mostly history and history-related items, and may or may not continue to add fiction. However, as with any bibliophile, I also have a collection of random books picked up on the basis that they look interesting.
