About My Library
I started reading early. My parents used to complain that they didn't have many pictures of me, since my "nose was always in a book." Some proof of that claim may be seen in the picture above - taken during Christmas time in the mid 1950's. I was probably 10 or 11 in the picture and I'm tracing a map in an Atlas that I got as a Christmas present.

I have been collecting books since I was in High School (1956 - 1961). At last estimate, I now own about 4550 volumes of all sorts - probably 75% or more are paperback (mass market or trade) and the rest are hardbound.

I read anything and everything. I have kept a reading record since 1959 and it is posted on the web at:
