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.

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

According to www.mymentalage.com I'm really only 34. We'll just leave it at that.

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 actually do own all of these. There are a few that have been loaned out and the borrowers seem reluctant to let them return home. Another reason I should keep reminding myself not to lend books, but I keep doing it. Why??

We've had a Nook and a Kindle and both died after very little use. Neither of them would hold a charge any more. I still have a few e-books listed here even though they are inaccesible and trapped in the ether. I'm sticking to the real deal from now on.
