About my libraryI catalog only books that I own, not those that I've borrowed and read. The word is a beautiful thing, but half of the pleasure of a library is derived from simply being surrounded by the books themselves.
My major interests demonstrated here include the classics, languages and linguistics, food, science and medicine, education, and children's literature. Yes, I have a lot of picture books. No, I don't have children. I think that this is entirely reasonable.

I also collect international editions of The Little Prince.
