About meI'm something like a geologist/geophysicists and was thirty before I discovered Dostoyevsky, John Graves, poetry and much other good literature. I think my deepest interest is in literature about place, especially if there is a geological tilt. But I like a large spectrum of book types, although what I like the most seems to change frequently.

About my libraryFor a quick look at my library check out my tags Favorites, Children's Favorites or Read (Note: Use my preferred view to see my comments).

Some of the other tags that may be interest are: Contemporary Fiction, Children's, Juvenile, Parenting, Geology, Popular Science, History, Popular History, Microhistory, Journalism, Nature, Texas, Poetry, Memoir, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, Classic.
