About meI am a married man from the Midwest and I have a passion for reading. My love of books started at an early age. A family friend had handed me "The Light of the Western Stars" by Zane Grey. I was around ten years old and I was hopelessly hooked. This infatuation has continued, unabated, for nearly 45 years. I've been on Library Thing for nearly 10 years and it has changed my reading life in so many positive ways.

About my libraryI love all styles & genres of writing. I aim for above-average quality and with this lofty goal I am rarely disappointed! I especially enjoy crime fiction, literary fiction and non-fiction. I've read all the books in my library.
