If you have not read The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, then I
recommend that you do so. It is a beautiful book.
I like books about religion, psychology and Spider Man.
I like quirky movies with Bill Murray in them, bad comedies, bad
action flicks, sappy romances, documentaries, quirky hipstery
films...I enjoy almost any genre done right.
I like food.
