About meSingle white female seeks hardcover or non-trade paperback book for hours of physically passive entertainment. Would prefer this to be your first relationship, though if you've been pawed by a few other owners this may be acceptable providing previous owners were non-smokers with clean hands. Pages with folded corners are a deal breaker.
Underlining passages means I love you.

About my libraryMy tags speak as to the kind of books with which I fill my library. If you were to combine all of my books into one, you'd have an existentialist pulp masterpiece involving upper class imperialists during WWII in which all of the principle characters savor their food whilst on the run from lesbian vampire first wave feminists. All of the women in the story are beautiful and emotionally complex, and most of the men are homosexual. There would be a happy ending to the story if it weren't for the fact that everyone's marriage has ended disastrously due to the prevalence of Kafkaesque incest and erotic encounters between linguistics instructors and their expatriate drifter students.
