About meI like to read: novellas; contemporary world literature; flash fiction; personal essays; things related to Surrealism and things "surreal;" art histories, mainly Eastern; Japanese literature and history; anything on culinary history, especially including tea and beer and Japanese cuisine; books about books, either on editing or criticism or reviews; non-fiction that enhances my appreciation of the world in some way (architecture, typography, dendrology); beautifully written fantasy; some detective stories.

About my libraryMy physical library is mostly fiction, and the tags I'm using only apply to books I own.

For "Read but Unowned," the physical books were usually library check-outs. Otherwise, I read them as ebooks. I don't count any of my ebooks under "Your Library."
