About My Library
My library's subject matter ranges from architecture to Zen Buddhism. I've had to weed some titles over the years, but I've schlepped most of my books through several interstate moves. I'm really enjoying cataloging on LibraryThing, but I keep asking myself: If I have so many books, why am I not smarter?! Well, many of the books that I own, I've not read - it's a work in progress!

About Me
I'm a law librarian, and I've been hoarding books since I was 8 (in 1970!)
