About My Library
buckley: Young adult books.
exeter: A large focus on American literature (books on the nature of America or written by quintessentially American authors). A smattering of English literature.
cmu: Majored in computer science, business. Research in africa, history, development. Interests in career, zen.
qatar: Summer after graduation through Qatar. Began with GEB/summer of "clearance" reading. Interests in international relations (FSO), cogsci, ai. Ended with some literature.
bah: Thoughts on future career incl. graduate school in law? Reading about consulting, strategy, organization, 2.0, ppp for work (through ribbonfarm). Lean startup.
lnkd: preinterview (negotiation, pmm, pm), delving into symsys/cogsci/linguistics/truenames (via scifi).
kites: Following a general pattern of being more interested in intuition and fluidity over rigid description to get at the "essence" of things, fascinated over Murakami's work.
aml: Airlines, loyalty, data science, economics, and management.

My favorite genre is probably Magical Realism because it has taught me so much on how to live. It is related to meta-narration and mythology. It is a departure from the traditionally heavy continental literature (attempts to portray the world through a Realist's lens).
