About meBookstore employee, coffee drinker, cat-less (difficult choice). I read far less than I want to, though it's quite a bit more than average. My background is in philosophy and physics, and it probably shows in my collection.
About my libraryMostly just stuff I'm interested in that I've picked up from work. I'm pretty lazy, so there's been almost no attempt to dive in depth into any one area, or gather an extensive set of material on a single subject, though they both have their appeal.
