About meI am a programmer, who owns very few programming books.
I aim to read "a book a week", but, as can be seen from my tags, I am nowhere near that goal.
I wish to spread my reading over a wide range, but truly "it's hard for thee to kick against the pricks" as Johnny Cash put it.

I appear to appreciate books that manage to "put me in someone else's shoes" (especially if that someone lived a long time ago), or whose depictions of what it means to be human "ring true" to me.

About my libraryThis is a virtual library, ie it includes books I have borrowed.
It is incomplete.
Ratings are a pain, reviews are desired, but a greater pain. Did you say "Kick!"?
