About meTwo historians, one specializing in the history of early modern Germany, the other in the history of medicine and science.

About my libraryIt's actually several libraries cobbled together. There's John's working library in history, especially early modern German history. There's Lisa's working library in history, especially the history of science and medicine. There's John's and Lisa's general purpose reading library which includes classic fiction and recent fiction and non-fiction. John and Lisa each have a few collecting concentrations from their antiquarian bookstore wandering days which sometimes overlap with our historical interests and sometimes don't. These collections contain a few books of genuine antiquarian interest. We also have a number of books inherited from parents, grandparents, etc. And then there are our children's books which we've also included.

So have we read them all? Short answer: no. Slightly longer answer: This is the collection of books that we currently own. It maps only imperfectly onto the list of books that we have owned in our lifetimes, and even less well onto the list of books that we have read. I'd say that there are quite a few more books that we've read that are not in our library than there are books in our library that we have not read.

If you are interested, I (John) have been keeping up a running commentary on how our collection has developed since we first joined library thing back in 2006. The comments are below in the "Leave a Comment" section. To follow our progress, scroll up from the bottom.
