About My Library
Bought at spare moments from too many library booksales and used bookstores discovered during a life filed with work related travel. Lots of books about trains, Minnesota, American history, the frontier, science for lay people, Catholicism, and Hassler and Hillerman and Douglas Adams. Many more books to post here, but that impinges on my reading time.

WHAT I AM READING NOW:
True Hearts and Purple Heads by Jim Klobuchar
What's the Worst that Could Happen by Donald Westlake
Garbage Land by Elizabeth Royte
About Me
Railroader and Minnesota chauvinist. Lover of cats, stars, trains, books, backroads, northern lights, liberal crusaders, the New Yorker, coffee, tin roof sundaes, truck stop cuisine, great lakes ships, good used bookstores and sixties folk rock. Older than I want to admit. Married. Lost faith a while back...it's hard to be a liberal Catholic. Hate most books forced upon one by English teachers. Also, for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows release party, I was the conductor on Hogwarts Express when a retail bookstore actual chartered a train for that crucial midnight for the release of book 7.
