About meI am the founder and a developer at LibraryThing.

About my libraryMy interests run to ancient history and languages, especially Greek and Latin. So far I've done maybe 1/2 of what I have. Frankly, it's also gotten a bit mixed-up and redundant, as I use this account for testing the software too. (There are a couple books I test out with, because I know they have certain fields or are in certain libraries.) That said, I've got a good chunk of my history, religion and archaeology in. Greek, Latin and novels to come....

In case you're wondering, the website listed below is not me, but I am trying to force Google to see it, for a friend.
