About my libraryI tend to give a lot of books away (or leave them in public places for others to find) or use the public library so I actually currently own only a handful of the books listed. The books listed are books that I've read, unless they're listed as textbooks, then I've only read part, well sometimes all.

I have several children's books both because they're enjoyable and I used to teach primary school. I'm focusing on reading more books on Southeast Asia (M.A. in International Affairs with a focus on Southeast Asia), but will read just about anything.

Hello Brian,

Awesome to find you here too! Still new to LibraryThing amongst other social media sites.

Looking forward to reading your reviews!

Very truly yours,

Noticed you liked Fight Club, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed bunch of kids and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


how do you leave 1/2 stars?
Hi Brian,

I see in your profile that you like to leave books in public places. Have you ever thought of joining Bookcrossing? There is an active group in the DC area that does just that!

Let me know if you'd like more information!

You are one of the people who share books with me for reasons other than my gigantic store of comic books.
Although, you are another Terry Pratchett fan, apparently.
Hi, thanks for adding me to your list - looks like we have a fair number in common there. Nice to see another fan of Haruki Murakami too. Anything in particular you found interesting about my library? Cheers.
I liked how their stories were told, it was involved and educational too. I liked how they went from idealistic to jaded to life goes on. There were points where I really didn't like Heidi, she just seemed very shallow. But by the end I I got over it.
The new account is working for me. I give up on the old password.
I really liked the "Emergency Sex" book.
bwahaha! i have found you.
