About meI'm a lifetime reader and book collector. I'm retired and able to read strictly for enjoyment or knowledge. Its wonderful.

The core of my library is history, biographies and non-fiction. I read fiction when I was younger and have a substantial fiction collection, but for many years I have read mostly non-fiction. Economics and politics are my current fields of interest.

About my libraryI have a small library in my house which holds my core collection and an overflow collection on shelves in my garage.

My nephew is a master carpenter and designed and built my library. Its solid maple wood with a natural stain and an engineered maple floor. He also built a desk to go with the library. It's capacity is about 3,000 hardbacks.
