About meI like reading both fiction and non-fiction. I go through periods where I read one or the other, but sometimes I read both at the same time. I usually read two books at the same time, as I like the change of pace. I like ideas that are on the cutting edge or that may be counter-intuitive.
About my libraryI have only rated books that I particularly liked. There are others in my library that I may have liked, but it reflects what I remember reading so far (more will be added). What I have rated is more reflective of my reading interests.Most books I borrow from the Brooklyn, NY Central Library. It is equivalent to having your own candy store.
