Informazioni su di meI grew up in a home surrounded by books. One wall of our living room was book shelves filled with books from classic to contemporary and I had my own books from the moment I could read; thus I have been a bibliophile all my life. My eclectic reading interests focus mainly on the humanities. Through participation in literature classes and discussion groups I am continuing my education. Long ago I received a BA in economics and an MS in Accounting from the University of Wisconsin. More recently I have been spurred by courses in the Basic Program of Liberal Education at the University of Chicago, Online Great Books, Great Books Foundation group, and courses at the Newberry Library. I enjoy reading novels, history, biographies, literary criticism and commmonplace books (James, Enright, Auden and Connoly).

"The sight of the cover of a book one has previously read retains, woven into the letters of its title, the moonbeams of a far-off summer night." - Marcel Proust --

La mia bibliotecaMy library encompasses a wide variety of subjects with a primary emphasis on fiction, philosophical, poetic, musical and historical works. Some works are saved from my youth while I have collected some Folio Society, biography and literature in translation over the years. I agree with Proust who described a book as "magic as potent as the deepest slumber".
