About My Library
I read a lot of fiction - modern and contemporary fiction mostly. I have a large number of science fiction and fantasy, and a lot of magical realism/modern myth. I also am reading quite a lot of african fiction. But I would say speculative/anticipation fiction is my predilection - i.e. scifi

On the non fiction the topics would be community, science, media and internet, linguistics, feminism, development, ecology, and quite an interest in books about myth.

I have far less non fiction than fiction as I used to get them from the library whereas I would buy fiction to read it in the original language. For the same reason I own very few books in french even though it is my first language.

I find it very hard not to buy books. There is no better place to whittle away a spare hour than a bookstore or library. I had to give myself a rule that I cannot buy more than 3 books in any bookshop visit, and I am sticking to it. Although make an exception for second hand/charity shops, i.e. if the books are cheap.

I have also given myself the rule to not buy new books unless I have read at least one book on my TBR pile (my 888 challenge is almost entirely from my tbr pile) or reread 2 books I have already read.

Books snatched on bookmooch and similar places are not limited in the same way, so I acquired 159 in the past year and gave away about the same number.
About Me
I love books. Seems obvious since I'm here and this is the first site where I have bothered to spend time actually building something.

Lets get the key hobbies out of the way... When not at the computer or reading a book or laughing with friends... I am a film buff, an amateur photographer, a mountain climber and hiker (with the camera!). This year is the year where I rediscover hobbies I have left behind in the past few years.

I'm endlessly curious. I like exploring, from little known places to independent music, alternative films, small publishers... This carries over to the computer where I have a keen interest in independent shareware, independent games, alternative websites and communities.
