Sobre mimI love the diction that a healthy fiction addiction brings. I love the way when you read a book you submerge yourself in the authors imagination. Storytelling diverged from our need to know and our need to share. These things were important in shaping who we are today.

So yes I guess I'm a geek for the written page. But I also love drawing, art in general, squash, tennis, rock climbing, swimming, rugby, baking, cooking, actually the art of making anything, films! Oh how I love good films, for the self same reason as I do books for their story sharing ability. I enjoy games, especially the learning of them.

I'm from New Zealand and have an appreciation for the outdoors & the simple pleasures in life. Currently I'm living in Germany learning german slower than I'd like and dangerously immersing myself into the german culture.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaMost of my books are still in NZ in boxes in my parents garage.(Is this a book crime?) But I list the ones I remember as I remember them. I like the thingness of books and therefore most (90%) of my books listed are owned. For this same reason I don't think I'll ever jump onto the ebook band wagon.

The books I like are just that books I like. Mostly fiction. Most genres. Most styles. I'm not too prejudiced. Which is good because my english book buying possibilities have narrowed substantially moving here to Germany. :)
