About meHuman. (Well) over 59. Male. Lazy. I look nothing like the picture (I hope) but I love this portrait of Mussorgsky. If I were, like him, a drunken genius, it would perhaps capture me perfectly.

About my libraryThe library is for use. Everything is there because I or my wife have wanted to read it. Now it is all getting a second life as our adult children continually turn up to return what they have read and to borrow something else. And it looks like our grandchildren are turning out booklovers as well. Thus - a good example of Karl Popper's 'World 3', a form of exogenetic information transmission.
