About meAfter years of reading whatever my present whim called for, I've determined to read nothing (or very little) that isn't worth a second read. Life is too short and I'm too damned picky to mess around with disposable literature.
About my libraryMy library is always a work in progress, and I prefer to own most books I read even if that means buying cheap used paperbacks—or ebooks, may they rot in hell—and/or forego a few meals.
