About meI'm a biologist and a freshly-minted PhD, who reads as much fiction as possible to help my brain decompress after a day of experiments. I usually have more than one book going at a time, due to my short attention span. Most of my reading is literary fiction or the classics, with generous helpings of Jasper Fforde and trashy historical fiction to lighten things up. I'm trying to increase the amount of nonfiction, fiction from other countries, and fiction by people of color.
About my libraryThe books listed here are all books I own. Being a broke grad student, I try to use the library first and then only buy the books I really like. "Try" being the operative word - I love buying books and am therefore failing miserably since spending more time on LT.
