About My Library
In addition to books, this library contains a catalog of my Music CD collection. For the CD's Most Dewey Numbers correspond to positions in a 400 Disc CD player.

The CGS tag indicates that the performer is either a member of, or has performed in a concert sponsored by, the Connecticut Guitar Society. CHC tag indicates that the artist performed at a Church House Concert (Haddam, CT) Alas, the Church House concerts have been discontinued.

About Me
What I like to read: literary fiction, especially fiction translated into English. I love short stories. I do read some genre fiction, but I don't like series unless the books can each stand alone.

In non-fiction I read history, biography, books about food, practical science & inventions, music, art--pretty much anything as long as it's well researched and well written.

I don't read a lot of poetry. And I don't read romance novels, self-help, inspirational memoirs, and celebrity gossip.
