About meI have a tendency to find authors that I like and subsequently go on a spree reading everything that they've written. I've already exhausted Isak Dinesen, Daphne du Maurier, and Dorothy Sayers. I may even be close to exhausting biographies about Isak Dinesen.
About my libraryMy library is skewed toward books that I love, or at least like enough that I have been willing to move them from apartment to apartment. Now that I own my home, I expect my collection will grow and probably begin to include books that would have previously found their way to a used book seller.
Favorite authorsJane Austen, John Buchan, Willa Cather, Raymond Chandler, Isak Dinesen, David Hackett Fischer, W. Somerset Maugham, Daphne du Maurier, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Dorothy L. Sayers, Sarah Susanka, Edward R. Tufte (Shared favorites)
