About My Library
Eclectic applies equally to my reading tastes and my book collecting habits. "Catholic" is appropriate, too, but a little too encompassing - my sad deficiency in understanding the hard sciences is both cause and effect of my comparatively meager shelf of science books. "Sprawling", though, is very apt in conveying both the general range of subjects of my books, and also my shelving methods. My library is rooted in my first life of academics (at Rutgers, Princeton, Glassboro (now Rowan), and Temple University). But when my career path jumped to commercial real estate, the growth of my library became unhinged from my day job, and since then it has divagated like an errant traveler who keeps going because it is his nature and he cannot help himself, even though he only senses his general direction, but does not know his actual destination and does not care. So it is with reading to me and I suspect most of those who truly enjoy the activity, and not just the fait accompli.

Favorite literary quotes:
O the green wothe botheth. (Joyce)

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. (Emerson)

Being bored is an insult to oneself. (La Rouchefoucauld)

I have perceiv'd that to be with those I like is enough, to stop in company with the rest at evening is enough, to be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough, to pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment, what is this then? I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in a sea. "I Sing the Body Electric." (Whitman)
