Not horribly active in anything these days, combination of various infirmities. If it weren't for my being innately cheerful I'd really be depressed, as it is a certain level of depression is unavoidable. So I read silly books, and feel better. I spend way too much time sitting in front of my computer.

About my libraryIt used to be much larger in regard to physical volumes. I'd built up quite the reference library, as well as extensive holdings of SF, Fantasy, and YA/Children's Fiction. Space constraints tied in with moving in with relatives put the kabosh on all of that.

A lot of what's listed here in regard to physical volumes, I don't actually still have.
