About My Library
Only partly entered. I'm working on it.
About Me
I am a leading-edge Boomer and something of an old-fashioned geezer. By that I mean that I read newspapers. I can blog and all that, but I have to read at least ONE newspaper (preferably more) every day.

I read lots of history. Lately, I have been enthralled with the time period moving out of the Dark Ages into the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Innovative, revolutionary seminal minds like Fibonacci, Descartes, Spinoza, Montesquieu and Blaise Pascal fascinate me.

I also like a good detective novel like John Sanford's Lucas Davenport series.

BIG music fan. I listen to music all the time. Mostly Jazz & Classical, but also Big Band & Oldies from the early 50s to the early (pre-Beatle) 60s. I am building a small collection of books on music, jazz & music history. I have a little music blog at: http://thejazzmonger.com
