About me

New profile pic - Myself and Alastair Reynolds (on my right, your left), author extrordinarrie of the Revelation Space cycle of novels and short stories. Al's other books include the collection Zima Blue and the mind-blowing House of Suns, among others. He is very likely my favorite author writing science fiction today.

It seems 2010 (and 2011 haha) is the year of the audio-book for me. I have been bogged down with school and probably will not physically read something other than a textbook until grad school is over. Until then, heavy investments in library rentals and will be in order.

And I'm so far behind on all my cataloging hopes and dreams that I anticipate finishing somewhere around 2014. Wish me luck.

About my libraryThese are all books I own. I am attempting to keep a running list of every book I have ever read (that I don’t necessarily own) and since I don't want to corrupt my basic library data I have created a companion profile. Please visit thegreattimsbooklist to check it out. Please make any suggestions if you think there is a book I might like. I'm always on the lookout for new good reads! All my favorite authors and reading specific groups are kept on that page, as well as any reviews for books I don't own.
