About meI come from a family of writers, teachers and philosophers - bookworms all. All of them have their own ever-expanding collections, but I seem to be the most afflicted.
About my libraryIt has taken over our apartment. Despite Regular culling (and two major reductions made necessary by trans-Atlantic moves) it has grown to over 4000 volumes.
