I love to read. Books are my passport to other worlds, like my own personal TARDIS, allowing me to explore any place in time and space. I love books. Actual, physical books. EBooks and audio books have their place – the ability to carry hundreds of books without being weighed down is fantastic and I very much enjoy listening to stories. Nevertheless, I have great appreciation for the craftsmanship of a well made book. Besides, being around by books is comforting. Libraries and bookstores are wonderful places to de-stress and relax.
My taste in reading material is eclectic. Admittedly, most of my library consists of fiction – contemporary, classics, science fiction, fantasy and especially mystery. But I also read non-fiction, especially biographies, memoirs, and history related texts. Though I’ve flirted with comics and graphic novels in the past, I have recently begun exploring the format with more commitment. Perhaps the only genre I haven’t ever really gotten into is horror, but anything is possible.
