I like books. I have used them to enrich, entertain, nurture, guide, and enlighten my life. I’ve discovered favorite genres and authors.

It is now down to 75 books or so. My library is now my e-reader as I carry it everywhere, just like my camera.

Why Not?



“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”  – Steve Jobs
