About me:

If you need my address it's available at RABCK.COM

I love to read and I do so on a daily basis. I tend to read fiction and my favourite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, Stephen King and Haruki Murakami. In the last few years I've discovered Neil Gaiman and Ian McEwan who deserve a special mention.

I'm trying to complete the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list and as you can see from this profile nearly everything I’ve read recently is from that list. The main problem I have with this is that it's ever expanding with new editions! Urghhh - how can I keep up.

Get your copy of the all new 1001 Books spreadsheet.

Apart from books I play rugby union and football (soccer); I'm an avid sports fan and watch MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Boxing, Football (Manchester United) and American Football (49ers).

Musically I'm pretty diverse I listen to anything apart from hard core dance tracks.

I'm also big fan of movies I'll watch most things but have a slighty preference towards sci-fi, action and thrillers.

My wonderful partner KT-J is also now fully assimilated with Bookcrossing so why not checkout her page!
