As you can see I’m partial to fantasy, but I love reading whatever I can get my hands on.

8) Music is a lot harder. I love all kinds of music:
grunge, hard rock, electronic (especially ambient) classical, folk, bluegrass, new wave… the list goes on and on. I really don’t care for Country music, but if forced to I’ll even listen to that.

If you want to know anymore about me, just stop into the library!
