About meI'm a big fan of history. I'm a train commuter, so I have quite a bit of time during the week to read in the morning and afternoon. I also have a very bad habit of looking for new books to buy while my shelves are already bulging with books that I have not read yet. I don't think there is a cure for that particular affliction.

About my libraryOur library reflects our varied interests, as well as the books acquired in the course of raising a family (3 girls and a boy). My interests are in the realm of history, so the titles appearing under the civil war, WW2, general history, etc. are books I've acquired. I do most of my shopping at two local used bookstores as well as online at ABEbooks. I also try to hit local library sales. The books tagged "read" are books I have read that I also own.
