About meFor about 10 years I worked as a professional librarian in both public and academic libraries, but my duties were mostly in computer technology so during that time I actually had very little to do with books! I also spent a number of years as an photographer (MFA) and puttering around with electronics. I have always been big on home audio. I have a poor memory for some things, and stopped being so much of a geek years ago because I could no longer keep up and the stress was getting to me. I am a bit of a non-conformist and dislike corporate reality (whatever that is). I want to read books that reveal something about the world, what it means to be human, deconstruct and debunk the layers of stuff we surround ourselves in. I tend not to like genre writing, but if it moves me or engages me then great! I sometimes enjoy reading reviews as much as books, especially those in the New York Times Book Review,, and of course here!

About my libraryI don't actually own all these books. Because of my bad memory, I sometimes get confused about whether I read a book or read _about_ the book in someone's review... So I have been adding books to my library as I remember what I have read and enjoyed in the past, even though I still may not remember exactly what the book was about... Generally I don't include books that I did not really enjoy.
