About meI don't seem to have much free time to read anymore. Besides work, when I'm not researching my Dutch ancestry most of my remaining free time is spent on "graving" (walking cemeteries, photographing and transcribing headstones, and everything that encompasses) and contributing to My recent book purchases are mostly on the subjects of cemeteries and local history that relate to that "hobby." I used to spend a lot of time exploring western ghost towns, which is probably no longer obvious from my catalog. My latest downfall is all those "Friends of the Library" bookstores. So many half-price sales, so little room.

About my libraryMostly in what I loosely consider the reference category. All my books are entered now except for a handful of odds and ends and I'm keeping up with new acquisitions. The books listed here I currently own. Ahhhh... but then there are all those old Desert and Arizona Highways magazines to be dealt with...
Boring? These are not the droids you are looking for. You can go about your business... Move along.
