About meBorn and raised in Chicago, now living in northern Virginia. I've always loved reading but did not get into book collecting until the start of 2013. I have much to learn but I'm enjoying the process, even as my to-read stack grows exponentially. A main motivation of mine is to amass an irresistible library that my two children will want to explore, and that will help motivate them to love reading as much as I do.

About my libraryCenters on Folio Society, Easton Press and Arion Press. From FS I generally get history and science books, with some crime thrown in. From EP I subscribe to the Greatest Books and Greatest Books of the 20th Century series. From AP I get amazingly produced treasures that would lead my wife to leave me if she knew how much they cost.
