About meAccountant by education, programmer by profession, amateur historian by avocation

About my libraryIf a book is about a ship (warship or ocean liner) or an aircraft (heavier-than air (I prefer 'burning' (jet) to 'turning' (propeller)) or lighter-than-air)), I'll buy it or at least add it to my to-buy list. History is also an interest especially the American Civil War, the Byzantine Empire, the Middle East and modern (post-nineteenth century) naval warfare.

I did read science fiction but got out of the habit.
