About meTime to update the profile again. I still have a giant freakish beard, and still love baseball. I am at Lake Superior State University, enjoying the Geology program. My apartment is literally a stone's throw from the St. Mary's River shipping channel, downbound to the Soo locks and thence to Lake Huron. Mysteriously, train horns here are far louder than the freighters' horns.

This thread is a list of the books I have read since I found this site.
Here are my review and chat threads below, starting with some 50 Book Challenges and graduating up to the 75 BC.

2010 Part 3, first in the 75 BC.

About my libraryMy books live in a cozy home made of cinder blocks and 2x4's. I have the better half of them here in the Soo, the rest are packed away in my aunt's garage.
