About meI treasure the life of the mind and the written word and believe that what we choose to read contributes to who we are. I am an avid reader of all formats--hardcover, paperback and digital and tend to read five or more books continuously--usually one each about politics, history, religion/spirituality, technology and fiction.

About my libraryMy library consists of books about comparative religion and Christian theology; mathematics, computers, technology and science; politics and history; food, cooking and gastronomy; health and exercise; psychology and sociology; knitting, crochet and fiber arts; and animals, nature, and, last but not least, cats (I live with four of them).

With respect to fiction, I read both classic literature and contemporary fiction, including but not limited to, mysteries, true crime and short stories.
