About meWhat I like to read: literary fiction, especially fiction translated into English. I love short stories. I do read some genre fiction, but I don't like series unless the books can each stand alone.

In non-fiction I read history, biography, books about food, practical science & inventions, music, art--pretty much anything as long as it's well researched and well written.

I don't read a lot of poetry. And I don't read romance novels, self-help, inspirational memoirs, and celebrity gossip.
