About meLiberal.



Also nerd.

About my library"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." - Mark Twain

"I find television to be very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book." - Groucho Marx

I buy a lot of books, and my "to read" pile would probably last me for a decade or two at this point. Yet I continue to buy more books. I think that I might have a mild form of book hoarding, but I'm not alarmed. As my mom used to say when I was growing up, "Well, it could be worse. It could be drugs."

As I have moved cross-country once already and am preparing to possibly do so again in the next year or two, I have finally discovered the value of "traveling light." I have, therefore, mostly switched to ebooks, although occasionally I do buy paper books.

A few notes about my categories:

"Your Library" - physical books that I have read and currently own.

"eLibrary" - ebooks that I have read and own (there will be some duplicates with "Your Library," as I often buy a hard copy if I enjoy the ebook).

"TBA" - I own these in both ebook and physical book format but have not read the book yet.
