About My Library
I have an eclectic library of approximately 3,200 books leaning towards biographies, history, business and religion. I love books and collecting them.

I am particularly interested in eschatological topics and academic/scholarly research in LDS and general Christian areas. I also love learning about the Muslim and Jewish religions.Further, I am an avid reader of current topic political books.

I am a small collector on anything Abraham Lincoln. I think he is the greatest president we have ever had. I have the four volume set of the "War Years" by Carl Sandburg and many others; a few quite old.

I have the Harvard Classics. I am an avid genealogist and love books and articles on these subjects. I am from Dutch-German decent and so books on those topics interest me.
About Me
I am married now over 43 years and have six grown and married children. We live in SLC, Utah originally coming from Florida.

I am retired after spending most of my career in training and consulting in the construction and management industries. I have worked and traveled extensively all over the US and the world.

I have a MA degree in management. I am a very avid reader and researcher enjoying all types of books and online feeds. I am also a writer.

I am a Mormon and enjoy reading and studying books on all types of religions not only mine. I was a Catholic and married in that church and enjoy reading and studying about that religion also. I focus often, depending upon the year, on religious history with its many facets.

Other activities are: interests in astronomy, computers, studying Google and its intricacies; also, geography and learning about new things in science. Politics and governmental history and the US Constitution are also favorites of study.
