About meAfter nearly sixty years I've finally figured out that I'm a born reader, not a born again but a born reader. I still remember books my mother & father gave me when I was a wee lad, well the earliest would be 5 or 6 then later it was the Australiana books my dad gave me. I might not have had a book in my hand when I was born but I hope to have one when I die.

About my libraryIt's growing every day I'm always looking for those books that left an impression on me at various time in my life, but only just lately have also noticed a tendency to read and collect books that once I would not dream off, in effect my library consists of all the books I can find that at one time I was to narrow minded or shallow to enjoy and of course the ones I enjoyed. My lively hood depends on collecting those books for you too.
