About my library"all those rooms, too humble to be called libraries, where the pursuit of reading is carried on by private people" Virginia Woolf

If you discover a potential error in my library, I encourage you to tell me, and I will do my best to correct it.

My books are in this library (bw42). My CD's and DVD's will someday be in SynK. Not sure where I will put my stuffed owls.
