About meI am a lawyer by trade. I have loved reading from a young age. I enjoy browsing other people's bookshelves to get a sense of what other people are reading (and thus thinking about). I always wonder what conclusions other people draw from looking at the books that I have read.
About my libraryThis library is primarily my own but has some of my wife's books as well. She borrows more titles from our local library where as I enjoy the feeling of ownership over the book. The library reflects my interests in history, architecture, art, and literature. It also reflects a long-standing love of fantasy. The large number of unread books demonstrates my inability to stop buying books or asking for books as presents for birthdays and Christmas.
