Add To My Library

It is my goal that by the end of 2024, I will have what is literally defined as a "full library", which if you did not know is only 1,000 books. If you would like to support my endeavor (as books are expensive), please feel free (but not obliged) to check out my book wish list below.

P.S. I love fiction in hardcovers, and nonfiction in paperbacks.
