About meA reader, collector, gardener, cook, researcher, writer, film buff and traveller who loves being surrounded by favorite books.

About my libraryMy collection has been slowly but steadily growing for many years. My specific areas of interest include Thoroughbred horse racing and breeding (hence the large number of obscure annuals only horse people would appreciate), Kentucky history, and contemporary Kentucky authors. Also a bit of an Anglophile and enjoy English history, fiction, and the great English mystery writers. Art, architecture and gardening books are other genres I gravitate towards, and of course, fiction. I 'inherited' a large number of books on trees, birds, and plant life. Lots of cookbooks, too. Love finding rare books in out of the way places, especially underpriced ones!
