About meI'm a retired high school teacher and teacher-librarian. My reading splits about half-and-half between fiction and non-fiction. Non-fiction choices are whatever strikes my fancy, and that tends to be philosophy, theology, sexuality and gender, and — broadly speaking — science. Much of my fiction is by gay and lesbian authors or deals with queer themes. A lot of it I have read to suss out good titles for a small gay book group that I belong to.

“When a book and a head collide and a hollow sound is heard, must it always have come from the book?” — Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

About my libraryThe "My Shelf List" collection shows what's actually on my shelves just now, while "My Library" includes in addition the titles I've borrowed from libraries since 1980. Year tags show my reading log, and they're complete except for a few years when I didn't keep track. So if you're interested in my reading habits, make sure you're displaying "My Library" before clicking on a year tag.
