About meBooks I'm Reading in 2007

About my libraryI'm a former high school English teacher and political activists. My love of reading is largely inspired by those two paths in my life, but it's also influenced by the fact that I think the life of the mind needs to be nourished by new ideas, insights, knowledge, and critical thinking. The books in my library have all done that for me.

I don't read nearly as much as I used to. Lately I've been reading a lot books about atheism, as well books on digital photography. If I were still a student in the university, I would probably read philosophy and some general science. I think reading demands conversation with others. Reading should have a purpose beyond just reading words. That's what thrilled me so much about teaching and political activism. I could take what I was getting from books and engage people in ideas and critical thinking about the issues that humanity.

If you signed me on as a friend on this site, thank you for doing so. I haven't been coming here often, but I've always liked LibraryThing since it first started. The developer of this site is a great lover of books, and he and his supports have worked hard to build it to what it is today.
