About meCurrently reading: The Double Eagle

Video Game account: ApeGames

I'm a 27-year-old male book addict, and spend far too much time alone reading books than is probably healthy. If I'm not reading, then I'm online discussing what I've read, what I'm reading, what I'm going to read, and what I want to read but probably won't get around to for months/years/decades. Sometimes I even discuss things I don't want to read, those mythical rarities that really do exist and, in fact, are more common than one would think. They usually have shirtless men on the cover.

In person I am an incredibly shy, reserved, and reclusive man and I rarely utter more than a few syllables at a time in public. I tend to get very anxious over the most trivial of things, and though I don't suffer from panic attacks, I do tend to prefer to hide in a corner somewhere whenever I am around a large group of people. When I do have to speak with someone, I'm usually too nervous to speak clearly and I generally stammer out the same few words over and over again.

Which is why I'm single and unemployed at the age of 27.

About my libraryMy library is a collection of books I have read since about August 2007. I usually just check books out of the library, so I don't actually own very much of it. I would love to have a house overflowing with books but I can't afford the luxury, so I'm happy to fill my afternoons with free books from the local library instead.

You never know what you'll find in my library. There really isn't anything I don't like and I'll try anything once. So expect anything to appear on my currently reading list, from astrophysics and neuroscience to comic books and thrillers.

I am a big fan of science, however. If it ends in an -ology it probably excites me, even if it is something like phytopathology.

Electronic book technology makes me sad. :(
