Sobre mi biblioteca

It's a foundling home for books. We are trying to be more selective, but they keep following me home. My book collection is split between the cabin in the sky, which holds mostly read books, and the retirement home along the Matanzas River which holds the unread books. Stuffed to the gills, I don’t have room to properly display any of them.

I've despaired of digital books. So don't go there.


Sobre mí

Book hoarder, lapsed historian, former frustrated bureaucrat, former assistant beekeeper, budding genealogist. Hopefully cured of a tendency to make ridiculously bad life choices, the kind that creates execrable, tortured poetry. Recently retired. Friend of the library volunteer. Writing a novel and shopping for an agent.

Currently reading, watching, and listening to:
