About meI'm addicted to books. For 22 years me and my late wife had our own independent bookstore in three cities around Northern California. Best job we EVER had. Learn more at

About my libraryI've entered all the books from my book journals (the ones not in storage) and I am now slowly entering reviews, as time makes itself available.
