About meLet’s see… I’m a voracious reader and am terribly addicted to used book sales. I am usually reading and/or listening to at least two books at a time, although it’s frequently more. I rarely go anywhere without a novel tucked into my jacket pocket or backpack, plus two or three audiobooks on my phone - and my e-reader as well, for emergencies! I’m a biologist, although only a small percentage of the books I read are science books. I read mainly fiction, typically a mix of fantasy, historical fiction, young adult novels, and literary fiction. I’m not particularly well-read in the classics (my high school English classes tended towards more eclectic book selections), although I try to pick off at least one or two a year.
About my libraryMy physical library is messy, with sideways and double-stacked books everywhere, although I can usually still lay hold of any book you want in under thirty seconds (unless it's one that's in storage at my parents' house, in which case you have to factor in travel time.) Since I moved it got an extra case to spread into, although there still (always!) seems not to be enough room for all of my books.
