About meI am a life long lover of books and a American History teacher. I have taught in the public school system for 41 years, and at the local community college for 25 years. I am the pastor of an old historical church, Bigbyville United Methodist Church and have been under appointment in the Tennessee Annual Conference as a Part-time Local Pastor for 29 years.

About my libraryMy library is an ongoing effort limited by money and space. The majority of my library is biography, American History, and theology. I have been adding to my collection since elementary school. In the recent months I have concentrated on adding to my library the "We Were There" series of history for young adults. As a child this series sparked a major love of history that would lead to nonfiction.
I also have over 282 books on Audible because there are times when reading is limited to the spoken word (driving, mowing and other yard work). I have also added several ebooks to my IPhone or IPad which is a wonderful means of always having a book to read. Ebooks on the IPhone or IPad are especially nice in bed because of the lack of glare and small size and lack of weight.
A big thank you to NPR. The book reviews of NPR are priceless in giving direction, focus, and pure entertainment.
My latest news is that Amazon Kindle books can now be downloaded on the I Phone. The price of Amazon Kindle books is much less than most other e books
