About meUnapologetic bibliophage.

About my library
What about it? All kinds of things there and I need them all.

Books to the ceiling.
Books to the sky.
My pile of books is one mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I’ll have a long beard by the time I read them ...

And hey, this isn’t a complete list ... just a small selection of stuff I’ve got around to cataloging. And that isn't a complete list of favorite authors either, before you ask.

Why books? Because, as Heinrich Heine said, wherever they burn books, they will, in the end, burn human beings too.


Favorite authorsPeter Ackroyd, W. H. Auden, John Banville, Julian Barnes, James Lee Burke, Raymond Carver, Lee Child, Richard Ford, Mavis Gallant, Patricia Highsmith, P. D. James, Dennis Lehane, Herman Melville, Claire Messud, Steven Millhauser, Alice Munro, Robert B. Parker, Ian Rankin, Miguel de Cervantes, J. D. Salinger, William Shakespeare (Shared favorites)
