About meI am a lawyer in Chicago, IL, but in a previous incarnation I worked in bookstores in St. Louis and Berkeley.

About my libraryMy interests range far and wide, which was the main reason I got into bookselling instead of graduate school after college. I love literature with a dose of fantasy and fantasy with a dose of literature. I also read all sorts of history, books on baseball, and anything else that piques my interest. (By the way, that amazing picture of Borges in a room made of books is "El paraíso según Borges" or "Paradise According to Borges" by Gabriel Caprav.)
