About meI am an English teacher, but that only partially shapes my reading habits. I finished graduate school in August of 2007, so I am finally trying to let the brain dust settle so I can figure out what I like to read and do now that I am not OBLIGATED to read and do things anymore.

I am 30 years old and live with my spouse and two cats in a fun neighborhood with lots of good places to sit and read. During a recent visit, my five year old niece asked us how many books we have... I suppose cataloging things here will help us get a rough estimate (things tagged as "his" are, well, his).


About my libraryI like to think of this as a "soundtrack" ("readtrack?") of my young adult life. I'm including mostly only things read from about the age of 14 or 15 to the present; I like to think that my reading habits/interests began taking shape around that age. Some notes about my tags:

* "read during high school" means I read it during that period of time (roughly 1994-1999) -- either as an assignment from school, or for pleasure.

* The same goes for "read during college" -- it means I read it between 1999 and 2004, either for pleasure or education.

* "Read during grad school" means anything read between 2005 & 2007; "read after college" means it was read during the weird limbo year of 2004-05 when I was in my first year of teaching but hadn't started grad school yet.

* "NPR" means that I was inspired to read the book after hearing about it on NPR; "NYTBR" means the same for The New York Times Book Review.
