About meI live, read and garden in East Tennessee after half a lifetime in Phoenix Arizona. Reading is a lifetime passion, sometimes an escape, almost always a pleasure. The collection documented here is weighted toward science fiction and fantasy, which were once the greatest part of my reading. While that is less true than it once was, the collection reflects a lifetime's taste.

About my libraryMy main objective in recording books on Library Thing is to keep track of what I've read. There's a half a lifetime of reading that simply hasn't been recorded but no matter. I don't record the often frightening array of books that I own but have not yet read. Those have long since outgrown the shelves intended to house them and many are in storage. I faithfully cull my library each year and contribute several boxes of books to our local library fundraiser, having concluded long ago that the books I would actually re-read are a small percentage of books I've enjoyed.
