About meI am an academic librarian, historian, husband, father-to-be, writer, and traveler. I have fun in the world of words.
About my libraryThe majority of my collection falls in the categories of European history, European literature, sci-fi/fantasy, and Crime Fiction. In addition, I also have a decent cookbook/beer brewing section, antique book collection and a growing travel section, but,unfortunately not the passport stamps to match. Thanks for reading!
