About meI've been reading books as soon as I learned how. When I was very young I had what seemed like a lot of books, and I would read them over and over. In addition to my own personal collection, we made frequent trips to the library where I would read every book I could find on subjects that interested me. When I finished school and started making money, I stopped going to the public library and started building a personal library of my own.

About my libraryI have narrowly-focussed interests, and the contents of my personal library reflect that. I'm also a completionist, so I tend to collect every book on a particular subject rather than just having a few. Deep down I feel like it's my job to bring books on the same subject together. I imagine that some day a time traveler will arrive in a telephone booth and tell me that my very thorough collection of books spawned an entire way of life and the people who live this way of life want me to come to the future and meet them. Or maybe that was Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure...
