About meI work in healthcare, have for more than 30 years. I like the outside, travel, but work in the garden isn't bad either. The wife says I have my nose in a book too much. I say not enough, look at all there is to read!
About my libraryThe best can be said about my library is that it is all over the place - different topics, authors etc. I pick a book I will like to read, not for its popularity at the moment etc. Non-fiction is good, but fiction intrigues me. I enjoy classics, but also reading from the now. My library reflects many interests and ideas and, of course, most of it awaits my reading.
