About my librarybuckley: Young adult books.
exeter: A large focus on American literature (books on the nature of America or written by quintessentially American authors). A smattering of English literature.
cmu: Majored in computer science, business. Research in africa, history, development. Interests in career, zen.
qatar: Summer after graduation through Qatar. Began with GEB/summer of "clearance" reading. Interests in international relations (FSO), cogsci, ai. Ended with some literature.
bah: Thoughts on future career incl. graduate school in law? Reading about consulting, strategy, organization, 2.0, ppp for work (through ribbonfarm). Lean startup.
lnkd: preinterview (negotiation, pmm, pm), delving into symsys/cogsci/linguistics/truenames (via scifi).
kites: Following a general pattern of being more interested in intuition and fluidity over rigid description to get at the "essence" of things, fascinated over Murakami's work.

My favorite genre is probably Magical Realism because it has taught me so much on how to live. It is related to meta-narration and mythology. It is a departure from the traditionally heavy continental literature (attempts to portray the world through a Realist's lens).
