Extended Profile

My Bookshelf: I've moved away from most of my books, but if you are interested in a trade, let me know and I can find a way to get them dug out of the closet and into your mailbox.

As for me, I like well written books with good pacing. If the book has humor, then that's a welcome bonus. I also like to read in German, but it takes me a long time.
