About meEarly 60s, engineer, insatiable reader. My dad (Delmere1) was also a member until his recent passing. My brother is a new member: (FetusColossus).

About my libraryHundreds more books but not yet time to enter them :)

75% of my library is fiction: mysteries (Sherlock Holmes / pastiche collector - hundreds); Scandinavian crime fiction; classics; legal mysteries; Victorian setting mysteries; some sci-fi; some "adventure"(?).

Most of the other 25% is a large collection of Scandinavian, Viking and Old Norse history, language, and mythology studies (hence the user name - bonus for those who know why - leave me a message).

Other nonfiction comprises a small but valuable portion of my library - biographies, technical reference, film history, and linguistics.

I also have a discriminating collection of Corvette history and pictorials; a similar collection of steam and diesel railroading; and a reasonable number of chess biographies (good) and instructional books (have done me no good whatsoever).
