More than I can list here. I have more books than is healthy to own
(and counting) and a Nook, which means I spend about 98% of my time
reading. Please don't tell my boss.
I read equal parts fiction and nonfiction. History, science, and
biography are probably my favorites in the nonfiction department.
Favorite fiction authors off the top of my head are Anne Rice,
China Miéville, Wesley Stace, Ian McEwan, Charles Dickens, Lian
Hearn, Donna Tartt, Ursula Le Guin, and, of course, Tolkien. I'll
give just about anything a shot, though. Except Twilight. Vampires
do not sparkle. They do not attend high school.
The last good book I read was "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt. In
fact, "good" does not do it justice. It was so fantastically
well-written that I want to punch myself in the face every time I
think about it. There, that's better.
I love most ethnic cuisine, excluding Eskimo and anything from
Bizarre Foods, but I will attempt to try new things so long as
they're not too bizarre...you know, like balut or kæstur
I listen to music that I like, regardless of its popularity, which
means I like a lot of stuff that people have never heard of. Yeah,
I'm that guy.
Television: I enjoy the staples...Downton Abbey, True Blood, Game
of Thrones, etc. Anything that makes me laugh is most welcome, like
It's Always Sunny and Little Britain. I'm a huge fan of British
television. I cannot get enough. Anyone looking at my Netflix queue
would probably assume it belongs to an English senior
I most currently enjoyed the shit out of Hannibal, Sherlock, and
The Fall, and am eagerly awaiting new seasons of each.
Also, life could never be complete without a liberal dose of the
Golden Girls. In heaven I live on their street and we have parties
on the lanai.
