Site design selection
The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meBook hoarder, lapsed historian, frustrated bureaucrat, assistant beekeeper, budding genealogist. Hopefully cured of a tendency to make ridiculously bad life choices, the kind that create execrable, tortured poetry. If not for the necessity of maintaining health insurance coverage through gainful employment I would be peddling used books and gourmet coffee.
About my libraryIt's a foundling home for books. We are trying to be more selective, but they keep following me home. Now that the cabin in the sky is finally completed, my book collection is split between there and the house I have to live in in order to hold down a job. Hopefully, they will one day all be happily reunited.
