About meI'll pretty much read anything unless it contains scenes of violence towards animals or was written by Nicholas Sparks.

About my library"For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm."

-Vladimir Nabokov
