Sobre mimPicture: My first new car, a 1959 Saab 93b or, as a friend called it, "Small, Black and Ugly." I took no offense. My father took every opportunity to tell me, "I told you so," whenever I had mechanical problems. Whenever = Frequently. This pic is actually of a 1958; same car... Two stoke engine, mixed oil & gas in tank, 3 cylinders, free wheeling, 3 speed on column, front wheel drive, suicide doors, am radio, metal "shade" behind grill to help hold in heat in winter; this car had it all.

The rationale of my book ratings is similar to most others at LT, and:
* Non-books (e.g. maps) are rated for what they are and my reaction to them and books are also rated considering what they contain; a book rating restaurants in Chicago, for example, could well be rated highly simply because it does what you expect in a thorough, thoughtful way. You don't expect, nor should you, great literature.

In general, the idiosyncratic and off beat reviews here are of books that have few or no other reviews.

Feel free to leave a note below if you drop by... I'd offer you a cup of coffee or tea, but that seems impractical in this venue.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaAbout 80/20 nonfiction to fiction. I like reading history, biography, finance, architecture, real estate, social issues... I'm addicted to maps and atlases which are helpful with regard to many reading interests, especially history, and frequently are wonderful art and history pieces themselves.

If I was quite wealthy, I'd collect historic maps and have a map room and a real library.

A 'real library,' that's like... Dark wood paneling, old-fashioned Victorian style sky light, high enough ceiling as to require a rolling ladder to reach the top books on the gonzo shelves, over stuffed chair with good reading light behind it, antique roll top desk. Lock on the door with the only key in my pocket. Could the library have its own private veranda (not a mere porch or patio, please) with an arbor adjacent to it?

Do I have to smoke a pipe? Do I need a spaniel? Is this a tad selfish?
