About meFather of four, delighted with my luck in finding such a wonderful wife. Recovering English major, former bookstore employee, ice cream shoppe guy, and pizza man; relocated Midwesterner; UNIX sysadmin at a university in Providence, RI.

About my libraryDone with the books at home, though many more rest in boxes at the parents' house. I find that I have, regrettably, a lot of paper boxes in the basement holding books.
Of the ones not in storage, many of my books are left over from college, apart from the ones I never bought; many are recent re-purchases of stuff loved years ago; and many books I read aren't here since I took them out of the library for a test-ride and they weren't good enough to own.
Also, I have mountains of books for children around the house intermingled with the kids' own books.
I work in IT, but I don't really own any computer books 'cause I get my employer to buy them.
If my reviews seems to be mostly positive, that would be because I don't keep (or buy in the first place) books that aren't any good. I'm not a shameless homer, but I just don't buy junk.
