About meI live in New Hampshire and write computer software.
About my libraryA disparate lot of classics, modern literary and genre fiction, essays, history, computer science and various and assorted of other classifications. About the only books I buy new are the computer science ones, as they have a limited shelf life and do, in theory, pay for themselves. For the others, I’m happy to discover them by chance at used book stores or on-line. I collect a few publisher's series, viz., The Modern Library, Everyman's Library, The Library of America and New York Review Books Classics. I do so with the intent of reading them and, as a consequence, I read more widely than I would otherwise.
