Sobre la meva biblioteca

I have about 1,000 hardcovers and paperbacks in my personal study, and about 50 Kindle e-books. Most of my library is comprised of history, biographies, and the classics, but I like a little of everything. I usually read three or four books per month, and I rate each of them in LibraryThing. Two books with the same rating aren't necessarily of comparable literary quality -- I might award five stars to a Tolstoy novel and five stars to a pulp fiction classic, because I appreciate them both for what they are.


BOOKS I'VE READ SINCE 2007: https://wiki.librarything.com/index.php/User:Betelgeuse
Sobre mi
American male in his fifties, very happily married, proud father of two daughters. I'm originally from the New York/New Jersey area, but I lived in the Carolinas for eight years and have resided near Chicago since 2005. Besides reading, I enjoy travel, astronomy, and music. Betelgeuse (pronounced BET-el-jooz) is a star found in the constellation Orion.
