About meI love to read (when I can) and prowl used bookstores for gems. In addition to my full-time job I sell used and out-of-print books on the internet (www.zenosbooks.com - check out the site for a lot more information on my books and lots of great book pictures). I used to juggle quite a bit and still do from time to time, but that picture was from a long time ago.

About my libraryI am book-rich and cash-poor!... Some of my favorite books - Confessions of Zeno, Moby Dick, Roderick Random, Buddenbrooks, Minty Alley, Black Jacobins, Wizard of The Crow.
