About meSystems analyst by weekday; fanatical reader and book collector other times; dabbler in many genres. Also obsessed music collector (for cataloging of which I use OrangeCD).

About my libraryIt is really OUR library: my wife Shelley, our three children, and I. I've enjoyed reading literature all of my life, so about half of our books are fiction, poetry, stories, etc., of all kinds. Shelley enjoys collecting art books, vintage children's literature, business books, and especially the Harry Potter series and related volumes. In the last few years, I decided to build a well-rounded mathematical library (I'm not a mathematician but I majored in math and have always been fascinated by the subject), so I ended up with quite a few of those. I also fanatically collected cookbooks for many years. (Most of those are yet to be cataloged here.)
