The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meI'll pretty much read anything unless it contains scenes of violence towards animals or was written by Nicholas Sparks.
About my library"For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm."
