About meI'm a biologist and a 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 libraryBooks I own (shelf or Kindle), books I used to own but gave away, books I'd like to own.
