About meNote: It's been a few years since I've been on this site, and updates will not be forthcoming any time soon. Suffice to say that we've removed almost 500 books from our shelves during my absence from LT, and may have bought another hundred more, so the catalog is not a true reflection of the books we currently own. Anything beyond this point is old news.
About my libraryThe name says it all! My wife and I have bookshelves in every room of our house -- two stories (the house, I mean), four bedrooms, LR, DR, Kitchen. A while back, we added six large bookshelves, and it took us a mere year and a half to fill them. We also got an additional nine smaller bookcases when we took possession of about half of WholeHouseFather-in-Law's library after he died. That added another 450+ books to our library. The other half of his collection was divided between the WholeHouseSisters-in-Law or given to Goodwill. We've bought a LOT of books since then; I designed corner bookcase to fit over my desk. It's already mostly full of reference books for when I write. The other plus of it is we have room for more books again. It's a Win/Win situation!
