About meRetired (hence user name)
BA History (emphasis ancient Near East)
About 20 years ago renewed interest in field
Usually reading 2 or 3 books at any given time (albeit not at the same moment)

About my libraryBooks and periodicals about ancient Near East to fall of Assyria and Babylonia.
Interest in divergence of Pauline Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism.
Also, period since Treaty of Versailles (1919), as it lead to WWII and the mid-East problems of today--almost linearly in my opinion.

Very little fiction--usually get at library, or buy remaindered and passed on after reading.
