About meDo you want to die old and craven in your bed?
How else? Though not til I'm done reading.
----A Feast For Crows, George RR Martin
I am a Canadian. I live in the US. I am left handed. I do bioscience. I am south asian. I am non-christian. I read obsessively, often at the expense of other activities. I like to eat when I'm not reading.
About my libraryI own much less than a third of the books listed - I read much faster than the space I have available to store books.
I've been adding books that I've read since my teens, as i remember them.
Anything 4 and above is a damn fine piece of work
Anything below that disappointed me in some way.
Anything below 3 angered or severely irritated me in some way.
