About meMy name is Sean, and I'm currently a senior in high school. I've always loved reading, though I read a lot less during my first three years of high school. Over the past six months or so, I've begun to read a lot more again, and I couldn't be happier. At the moment, I'm in a Vonnegut phase, though I'm open to all authors (love Salinger to Faulkner to O'Connor to maybe even you). I primarily check out books from the library, and I use a Facebook application called Visual Bookshelf to keep tabs on what books I've completed. Here, though, I've only listed the books I own and refuse to leave my house (though some, admittedly, are not among my favorites, while others that I love I do not own).

In addition to fiction, I love reading histories and biographies. Outside of text, I love film and television, and I've occasionally read about both. I've gravitated away from them in recent years, though I do still love a good film (Eternal Sunshine being my favorite) and a good television show (Arrested Development and 30 Rock - how I love thee!). I also have some interest in writing, though it drives me mad much of the time. I also like people - some of the time, anyway.

About my libraryAgain, I tend to use the library. I don't own many books which I absolutely love. Generally, I only buy books that I know I'll need to annotate or which I have trouble tracking down at the library.
