About

I like to read well-written fiction, including historical and literary fiction, and the occasional classic novel. I'm always trying to find good book recommendations though. I try to track all of my reads (and attempted reads), as well as my personal collection and wishlist. I don't always post a review, but I usually rate a book when I complete it (or quit on it).

 

I really like paperback books, especially trade-sized, but I also like old and plastic-wrapped (library) hardcover books too.  I love going to local library book sales and used bookstores.

 

I don't keep most books I read, unless I think I'll read them again sometime. I usually swap them on BookMooch or PaperBackSwap, but occasionally I'll sell them online or donate them to a local library.
