About meI am a bookseller at a local Half Price Books store. I have a Master's Degree in Musicology from Indiana University.
About my libraryMy library is largely an accumulation reflecting my changing interests rather than a collection. Areas of strength include poetry, lit crit, music history, cartoons and cartoonists, Punchiana, cookbooks, and books about Minneapolis. I am slowly starting add my musical scores as a separate collections, but do not plan that this will ever be a comprehensive list.
