About meStumbled on Library Thing on, March 16, 2010, and less than 24 hours later I was a member and had catalogued my first book.

The best things in life are discovered serendipitously, and that's how I happened to see a reference to LibraryThing -- while looking for something else. Actually, if you must know, I was looking for a listing of the books in Thomas Jefferson's library. I happily found that, and an item on the same Google search revealed a link to Library Thing. When I went to bed that night I was actually hyperventillating after spending about an hour fooling around on this site. At 2:20 a.m. visions of a catalogued, organized book collection were interfering with sleep.

About my libraryMy collection reflects a balance of literature and nonfiction -- history, philosophy, literature and criticism.

My tag cloud functions as a subject index to my books, and there you will get a bird's-eye view of my interests. I welcome comments about shared interests, or whatever inspires you.
