About meA typical bibliophile ... if it's printed, I like it. My collection has been haphazard and eclectic, and spans more than 45 years; I started collecting books when I was about 8 years old.

About my libraryI have, at conservative estimate, more than 20,000 books. At present, only about a tenth of those are not in storage. I need more space!

My oldest book was printed in 1766. I love to collect old books, and I have a beautiful collection of sextodecimo- and smaller volumes.

My best find was a 22-volume limited edition (87 of 210) set of Tolstoy, leather-bound, printed in 1904 by Dana Estes and Company; the tooling and gilt-work on the red leather, and the marbled end pages, are some of the most beautiful work I've ever seen. I bought it at a garage sale 14 years ago for $300, a real bargain!

Now if I could just get my hands on one of those handmade "Tales of Beedle the Bard" by JK Rowling....
