Pretty much any history or language book, Game of Thrones
, World without
end, Harry Potter (just started reading it...I know...), Century
Trilogy by Ken Follett, Say You're One of Them (not because it was
on Oprah) and many many more. I love to read. My two favorite
authors are Isaac Bashevis Singer and Steven Erikson. However, my
favorite genres are sci-fi
and horror novels. I love Stephen
King, Ursula LeGuin, Octavia Butler, Alastair Reynolds, Arthur C.
Clarke, Isaac Asimov and Iain Banks. I'm a hard sci-fi type with a
soft spot for liberal sci-fi (hence LeGuin).
I like pretty much every form of music. Current favorites: Howlin'
Wolf, Phil Collins, Zion Golan, Lowkey, Sarit Hadad, 80s Metallica
and some Iron Maiden. I also love Lady Gaga. Why not?
I don't watch much TV other than sports (all Boston teams), stand
up comedy and HBO shows. Just not my thing. However, I'm absolutely
not one of those pretentious people who doesn't own a TV and looks
down on people who partake.
I love food and I'll eat basically anything; my favorites are
American, Middle Eastern, Chinese and sushi. Since I lived in China
I'm really picky about Chinese food. My dad grew up in Kentucky so
I have soft spot for southern comfort food too.
