Über meine Bibliothek
Heavy on mysteries, I especially like older mysteries from the 1920-50s and also modern mysteries set in those times. I also have lots of classics and modern literature, with special fondness for WWII fiction, naval adventure, books set in the British Empire. My non-fiction is more eclectic-history biography, travel, cooking, birds, leftish politics, theology. My ratings skew high because to try to keep my collection manageable, I give away books unless I can't bear to.

Über mich
I am a retired Foreign Service Officer, an economist, a Quaker living in an old farmhouse in Washington state. I have lived in Guyana, East Germany, Zambia, Kyrgyzstan, India, Ukraine, Nigeria and Tajikistan. Besides books I collect and wear vintage clothing especially 1940s suits and I like alt country/Americana music. I have a Basset Hound named Henrietta, or Hetty for short and a Great Dane named Cora. I have recently acquired a kitten named Oscar.
