About meI'm a graduate student in a molecular biology program, so in my free time I like to read fiction. Some of my favorites are Victorian and Russian novels as well as the current crop of literary fiction.
About my libraryI don't own all the books in my library. Instead, I've been trying to keep track of everything I've read. I started noting when I would complete a book in mid-2003, so those dates are there. For books that I read earlier, I estimated the time when I finished that book and added the date as 12/31/year.
