About meCurrently Reading

About my libraryEclectic but nearly all in English. Tree and "e-" volumes. Current and antiquarian. No scrolls. Main reading interests are literary fiction, classics, historical fiction, international fiction, and modern physics and "new" sciences (not pseudo-sciences).

My Library

Most Influential Books in My Library: These will change from time-to-time as I re-think and refresh.
