The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meI'm a married 50 something female and I'll read just about anything that stays still long enough for me to find my reading glasses. Interests du jour usually drive my reading but perennial themes are psychology/neuroscience (I have a BS in that field), investing (I have traded mainly stocks and options for the the past several years with surprising - although modest - success), homemaking (I'm skilled in just about every fiber art, love to cook, hate to clean) and health. I read mostly how-to non-fiction due to skill/knowledge accumulation but when I do read fiction it tends to be either in the Southern genre (I grew up in the US South) or European historical fiction or spy thrillers (my parents and I are German immigrants). The only categories that tend NOT to draw my interest are computer manuals (I don't speak compu-geek so I'd rather ask my husband to explain rather than slog through those instructions), Christian themed fiction or inspirational (I'm questing but uncommitted in the area of religion) and military history (hubbie is a retired Marine - his area and he can keep it with my blessing and relief).
About my libraryMy library reflects all my interests although not as accurately as it should as we have moved 10+ times in the past 25 years. It seems that I just get my bookcases organized when we move again. Since I know we will be moving at least one more time so I've only unpacked about a third of my library - sigh. But there are always new books just around the next bend and I embrace the adventure.
