About mehmmmm...not much to tell, but hopefully there's enough in me for someone out there to get interested :)
i've always been an avid reader, and i can probably write a blog (i'm not though, not yet) on the phases my reading taste has gone through since i was a little kid. i credit my dad for teaching me how to enjoy reading, and my mom for teaching me to love reading.
a lot of my friends have this notion that i'm a highly intellectual reader and will only read books that are essentially exegeses on the human condition....in truth, i detest that description! it makes me sound like an old bore. i like to keep my choices in books as varied as possible to keep me from burning out...and to keep it fun :)
its true, i have enjoyed stuff like 'brothers karamazov', 'master and margarita', 'norwegian wood', and various non-fiction. but i have also special places in my heart for 'lord of the rings', 'the foundation series', 'harry potter', and, yes, even 'twilight' :p i read a lot of graphic novels (i love superhero mythology :p) and im dreaming of the day to complete my first dickens as well as read 'pride and prejudice', 'emma', 'wuthering heights', and 'jane eyre'.
in short, if i am forced to describe how i choose the books i read, i have to say....i'll read anything i feel like reading ;) my only criteria is that a book has to have the potential to be a satisfying read.
i do have my go to genres tho....detective mystery (more agatha christie and erle stanley gardner, less pd james and james patterson) and fantasy (rowling, tolkien, lewis, feist, susanna clarke).
as should now be apparent from this profile, i also like to ramble a lot and usually dont know how to stop :p
About my libraryright now, my plan is to update my library one book at a time, as i finish something...i hope to update my library description after i review 20 books :)
