I love reading both fiction and nonfiction, and I have fun talking with people about their favorite books. (Two of my favorite novels: Chaim Potok's "The Chosen" and Richard Russo's "Straight Man." I also loved McCullough's biography of Truman.) I think stories are important--both for understanding the world around us and for entertainment.
I enjoy being busy and involved in activities. I do a little volunteer work, am on a few committees at my church, and try to get to the gym or on my bicycle several times a week. I'm also happy having a quiet evening watching TV shows or a movie. (On the most recent Myers-Briggs test I took, I came up with ISTJ.)
My friends say I am a good listener, thoughtful, funny, and intelligent.
