About meI am an ergonomics and human factors engineer with a doctorate in experimental psychology and graduate training in linguistics and developmental psychology. And I'm a person with too many books and too little space to store them. I despair that I will make Library Thing's "more" list of the largest libraries. I'm always asked "Have your read all those books?"

About my libraryMy library represents a collection of professional books over several decades, in the fields of psychology and ergonomics, and intellectual interests in physics and other sciences, philosophy, history, language, religion, politics, and literature, and guilty fun reading in good and bad science fiction. Some of the professional books have been sought out through bookstores and, later, the internet to find particular interests, some are historical. I do not collect books for themselves but always for content, nevertheless, I have some interesting gems: a book by Irving Rock once owned by Harry Harlow purchased in Madison, Wisconsin (just the image of the one reading the other is worth it), and a copy of Yerkes' More than Human with a fascinating inscription between the author and a student.
