About My Library

Due to accidents, deaccessioning, and living in an area well served with libraries, I only own a portion of the the books I'm listing. At least this was the case before the buying binge of the last decade or so! Let's just say that some people's libraries are more virtual than others! As for how I rate I figure five stars is for a book that really impressed me at the highest level (as the more books you read the less impressive any given book becomes), four is worth rereading (or owning if you're a specialist), three is worth reading once, two wasn't all it's cracked up to be, one is that I read this book so you don't have to.

About Me

I'm just some guy who now lives in Columbus, Ohio, having spent 40-years of their life in the Washington, DC area, thirty of those years having been an employee of the National Archives & Records Administration. You can figure out my reading tastes from looking at the list.


For those of you who are curious my icon is a Curtiss A-18 Shrike; a 1930s warplane
