About meDean of the Honors College at the University of Maine. We live in a house with 10 rooms or so, and none of them is devoid of books. Of course, I can acquire books much more quickly than I can read them.

About my libraryIn general, my library focuses on the history and philosophy of science, sports, higher education, and mysteries (go figure). My collections of John McPhee, Robert Parker, and Stephen Jay Gould are pretty much complete. Thus far I've cataloged (on here) most of the books in our "library" at home and in my office at work -- I've yet to touch my home office (mostly general fiction and mysteries) or the guest room (mysteries). Even with CueCat, it's a bit daunting.
