About meI read books. Crazy, I know.

About my libraryMy library is a collection of books I have read since about August 2007. I usually just check books out of the library, so I don't actually own very much of it. I would love to have a house overflowing with books but I can't afford the luxury, so I'm happy to fill my afternoons with free books from the local library instead.

You never know what you'll find in my library. There really isn't anything I don't like and I'll try anything once. So expect anything to appear on my currently reading list, from astrophysics and neuroscience to comic books and thrillers.

I am a big fan of science, however. If it ends in an -ology it probably excites me, even if it is something like phytopathology.

Electronic book technology makes me sad. :(
