About meMost of my reading since college has occurred at airports, on airplanes, in hotel rooms. I'm relearning to read at home.

I want to read all the classic books that I might have read in college had I majored in English instead of Finance. I find this strategy to be hit (Moby Dick) or miss (Sound and the Fury).

I want to read all the bestsellers that have a chance at becoming new classics. I find this strategy to be hit (Kavalier & Clay) or miss (Atonement).

I hate reading hardcover books. I despise reading mass market paperbacks. I refuse to read books with movie tie-in covers.

I’d like to learn to read with the tv on.

About my libraryThese are all the books I've read since the fall of 2001.


Favorite authorsMichael Chabon, John Updike, Tom Wolfe, Herman Wouk (Shared favorites)
