Library of Knowledge
As a first post here (on Steemit) - this is a little introduction.
I like (even love) to know. In fact, for me - knowledge (and acquiring it in various ways) is the best form of entertainment. Years ago it was music. Music was everything - an aim in itself. But finally music became one of many forms of gaining knowledge ... much exploited already. And so i abandoned it (not completely), to focus on other things that could help me to further progress.
I was fortunate to have a wise father who was eminent scholar. And a practical mother - university librarian. Because of these, from the very beginning of this life i had almost unlimited access to many inaccessible sources of knowledge (people, art, books, papers, records, tapes, and so on). Thanks to that, in the early seventies - being a primary school student - i have collected on tapes whole discography of The Beatles with all covers, photos, and artwork - not just 'British' discography, but also 'American' and 'Japanese'. In those days it was really a huge achievement for anybody from behind the so-called 'Iron Curtain' - especially for such kid i was then - rock'n'roll music was simply forbidden in my parts.
Half a century has passed. My interests changed constantly, and my collection has grown ... quite. I have no more space from a long time. Only virtual. Moreover, items from my collection were used extensively by others as well, who 'forgotten' to give them back, and many was simply stolen.
Also, i'm getting old, and times are 'interesting'. I began to worry about the fate of my library. Particularly, since it isn't 'common' library, but unique Library of Knowledge. It is now my mission to preserve all scholar materials of my collection. I may die tomorrow, but library must survive. For the benefit of all.
So here i mainly am for sharing my whole library.
And maybe i can be useful for something else yet ...
I'm NOT doing it for money.
I do NOT need any money.
And i am NOT asking for any donation.
Let it bring an advantage to everyone.
