Hello Prisoner,(the name reminds me of the Patrick McGoohan series)
I am flattered to be added to your list of interesting libraries. On a site as big as LibraryThing I am always surprised to be noticed. I see that you are a fairly new member. I went through your library and found it to be very interesting. You don't have a lot of fiction at this point, I noticed the Library of America books and P. G. Wodehouse. I imagine you got the e-mail on the Library of America sale. With 20% off over $75.00 I am looking at buying some Mark Twain that I think I would enjoy. I really like the LOA books. I became a subscriber about five years ago and went a little overboard buying some on sale and some used so I have plenty to last me for a long time.
Two of your books I bought yesterday at a used book store, the Samuel Eliot Morison and The Last Days of Pompeii. I notice you have some older books, do you ever buy any used books? I like the bargains and there is a good used book store right next to my office. You have a number of books on boats and sailing and also baseball. I have never done any sailing except for one time I went out on a client's sailboat in Tampa. What I enjoyed most was the silence as we moved along, I can see why you enjoy it. Baseball and college football are the sports I like to most. I also enjoy listening to baseball on the radio. I have XM radio and get all of the games. I like to listen while I read.
You have a lot of ancient Greek and Roman history. I usually read history by topics for a period of years. I am finishing up the Civil War after about three to four years and plan to read about ancient Greece and Rome next. This year I read The Landmark Herodotus and I just finished the Greco-Persian Wars by Peter Green. I did a couple of posts on the Ancient History group about Herodotus. I have a good start with the books on my shelves and I haven't read a lot of them. I have always enjoyed history and love to study different areas. I like to think of it as a one person seminar. One of the reasons I like LT is because I find other people who are interested in history and books the way I am.
I do run on so I will close now. Be well and drop me a line when you feel so inclined.
Bill
