Music: Many kinds. However, I do hold a special place for bluegrass music, for going out to shows, for more laid-back music (unless it's dancing time). Different days, different styles.
Books: Recently read or currently reading includes: The Tale of Two Cities, The New Yorker, Conscileince, A Confederacy of Dunces, Wendell Berry, The Killer Angels. Mostly non-fiction, but I enjoy both.
