About meWell, like everyone here probably, I'm a voracious reader. I currently also work in a used book store which is just terrific.

My background is geology and education. Other than reading I like rowing (preferably on starboard :) ) and weight training. Lately I'm an amateur foodie excited by a bunch of new vegan cookbooks I've been trying out with good results.

I mostly read fiction - I guess it would be categorized as contemporary fiction, but I read a broad spectrum of other things as well.

If you share any books with me and see I'm missing something you just loved, suggest it to me. I'd like to get some good recommendations.
