About My Library

Youll find a lot of history, dozens of books in German, quite a few on Islam, and a whole bunch about southeastern American Indians. Most of the fiction is my wifes, along with a fine Quaker history collection.

I'm intrigued by conspiracy theories and people's willingness to embrace them. Thats why youll find several musty old paperbacks (tagged Red Menace) that warned our grandparents of an inevitable deth struggle with Godless Communism. Similar books, associated with a more recent panic, are tagged scary Muslims.

I am usually reading several books at once.
