About meI enjoy reading books on virtually any topic, although I tend to prefer history, fiction and biographies. I also enjoy poetry.
Currently I'm reading primarily history books on the U.S., Spain and China. In fiction I tend towards more classical, proven authors although often I venture with some contemporary writers whose writing styles may intrigue me. But I also read some modern popular writers.

About my libraryI am slowly cataloguing all my books into Librarything. I think I'm a little more than halfway through.
So far I've catalogued most of my fiction (novels, short stories, etc.), poetry, literary criticism, biography and history books. I still need to tackle my non-fiction books, which are mostly economics, statistics and business books.
