Om migI am a lifelong reader and book collector. My childhood was spent adventuring along the shores of the Great Lakes; exploring the colonial era forts, traveling the myriad waterways and investigating Native American culture and lore with my Grandfather, a local historian and anthropologist. Thus was my obsession with history born, resulting in degrees in history, political science and a JD.

My wife and I frequently volunteer our time to help the Arlington Heights Memorial Library Booksale. Truly one of the best used book sales around, you should definitely check it out if you are ever in Chicago's NW suburbs.

My late Grandfather's one published book is listed here on LT, an examination of the Lithuanian immigrant community of his childhood in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
"Growing Up in Old Lithuanian Town" by E.V. Gillis

Pictured is my personal assistant, Corwin the Library Spaniel.

Om mitt bibliotekMy library reflects an interest in both fiction and non-fiction including: history, Great Lakes history, military history, philosophy, mythology, folklore, classic literature, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, comic books, art and more.

It is going to take some time to catalog my entire collection, so please bear with me. While you are waiting, here are some of my favorite quotes:

When asked by a visitor upon seeing his prodigious private library: "What a lot of books! Have you read them all?"
"No, these are the ones I have to read by the end of the month."
- Umberto Eco, How to Justify a Private Library
