About My Library
Your Library here includes only books I own, with a small exception listed below.* I find the cataloging functions of LT primarily useful to me for managing and working with my actual library, and to connect me to others with similar books and interests. I do not see any use in tracking whether I have read or am reading a book. I do find it useful to track which of my books are top priorities for future reading (TBR). I have no category for books read but not owned, nor do I maintain wishlists on the site.

My Connections are generated from most of my library, minus science fiction and fiction, as these books were skewing MWYB too much.

*I have included in my library a small number of books I have read as audio books in the car from the library. There are also a handful tagged as "unowned", usually books I've borrowed, read, and returned

My interests as they relate to books:

I love books, love learning, love scholarship. I have a deep and abiding curiosity about the universe and about the miracle of our existence in it. I love impossible questions like “Why is there something rather than nothing?” I am deeply grateful for the capacity for awe and wonder.

What do I like to read? Fiction and nonfiction. Poetry and drama. I cut my teeth on science fiction and classics, but I have always read voraciously and widely.

I am obsessed with history in general, but am a hungry consumer of science, history of science, physics and biology in particular, psychology, geology, anthropology, human evolution, paleobiology, cosmology, biography. I love art and I love the creative process, mine and that of other people! I have never yet known more than momentary boredom.

Somehow, all of the above is reflected in my library.
