About My Library
Could never buy another book and still die before I read the ones I have, even if I live to 100! I also have a tendency to give away my favorite books to others to read, who unfortunately have a tendency not to return them. All I ask is that you read it and pass it along to someone else.

About Me
Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
--Arnold Lobel

Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?
--Henry Ward Beecher

A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens--second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths.
--Reynolds Price

Tell me a story. You can recite it, draw it, film it, or sing it, and if you publish a good one, I'll try to read it, or at least buy it to sit on the shelf until I can get to it. I tend to like true stories best, because truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
