About meWell, obviously, that's not my picture! But I just love it.
I'm 50-something and single. I'm a software developer until I win the lottery, recently moved from .NET to Java. I have a teen son who just got his license, so bear with me if I seem scattered! We both love baseball, as you can probably guess from my library.

About my libraryThe biggest section of my library is devoted to baseball. I have in the neighborhood of 1,000 books, roughly 800 non-fiction and 200 fiction. I also have a lot of private eye/detective fiction. Then just a little bit of everything.
