La mia biblioteca
In history I tend to focus on 20th century conflict - WW 2, Cold War, Vietnam War, wars of liberation. Within this group my collection on the Vietnam War is the largest in my library. All the items I have listed are physical objects.

IMHO everyone should read these books.

Informazione su di me
I have been gathering books since I was a little kid. I even went so far as to hide a bookcase in my closet, behind clothes, after my dad said, 'No more bookcases!' He eventually found it.

Fortunately, I have a very understanding wife. This has allowed my library to grow with no end in sight.

If you are not reading, you are wasting time.

I used to work for a nationwide chain of used bookstores. I was laid off due to Covid, allegedly.
