About My Library
Small (constrained by space and budget) but selective. Too much of it dates to my time in college... A lot of text books (not just from school - I tend to buy these things like some people buy paperbacks...) and reference books. Math, computer science, textual criticism, theology, philosophy, random science books, and stuff in or about German, and some other language books. There's some fiction, most of which is science fiction and mostly hard sci-fi at that. The rest is composed almost entirely of epics, a few classics, and of course Shakespeare.
(And obviously I still only have a fraction of it on here.)

I'm working on my tagging system. I'm happy with a lot of it, but some of it makes no sense. (Does English means it's about the English language? Or written by someone from England? Or written in English? Heck if I know, and I seem to have used it in at least two of those sense...)
About Me
My background (and current employment) is in the field of mathematics and computer science, but I intend to attend seminary someday. I am also interested in linguistics and languages. And philosophy. And a bunch of other stuff.
