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. Maybe some wine, cheese and chocolate too. Writing a novel and shopping for an agent.

I have a tiny, neglected blog about bees, books and gardens. Please visit the Bee's Book Garden. www.beesbookgarden.wordpress.com

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.

I've despaired of digital books. So don't go there.
