About meFreelance editor living in the Pioneer Valley (Massachusetts).

About my libraryLarge holdings in languages, Russian, classics, travel, history, reference, poetry, literature, Africa, science fiction, Vietnam, music, &c; I'm entering them in more or less that order, with whimsical exceptions.

Dec. 15, 2005: All the books in my house have now been catalogued (barring the possible discovery of a few forgotten here and there, lost among my wife's books or behind bookcases), for a provisional total of 3,978. Don't weep for my not reaching the 4,000 mark; I've got at least several dozen more still boxed up in my father's garage in California, which will eventually bring the total comfortably over that milestone. I'm still only #12 at LibraryThing, though; I take my hat off to theraven.

Feb. 16, 2006: Just got the first of several dozen boxes of books and magazines from my parents' garage in Santa Barbara, hence the sudden upsurge in my book count; there should be a couple of hundred additions (mostly '60s sf paperbacks) by the time the influx has been fully accounted for.

GroupsAmerican Civil War, Baseball, Fans of Russian authors, I Survived the Great Vowel Shift, Language, Maps and Atlases, Nabokov!, Proust, Russian books and language, Slavic Languages
