About meMy desk is remarkably difficult to find.

My reading preferences are as follows:
fiction - sci-fi, fantasy, litfic, humor, historical, thriller
nonfiction - science, math, non-military history
not interested - military books/novels, romance, westerns, most mysteries, maritime fiction

If you want to give me a gift, I'd love to read a book YOU loved or at least made you think.

About my libraryI *think* I have all my books imported here. My collections are as follows: "Read and Released" are books I've read but don't have anymore (BookCrossing, library, etc.); "Read and Kept" are books I've read and put back on the shelf. "To Read" and "Currently Reading" should be self-explanatory. I rarely keep books after reading them.
