Extended Profile
- A Drosophilist is an unofficial, yet widespread, concept of a scientist who uses fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) as a model organism for research.

So I'm considering myself a geeky person who really enjoys reading. I did read very little during my later teens and I didn't take proper time to read books for fun until after grad-school. I got tired of having unread classics in my bookshelf so I started reading 1984, Kallocain and Mountain of Madness and then I was hooked. My Goodreads profile is www.goodreads.com/Drosophilist

The genre I usually read are reflected in the three books I started reading;
1. Science-Fiction/Dystopian, 2. Fiction-Classics, 3. Horror-and-Macabre

and my favorite author at the moment are
*Philip Dick
*Stanislaw Lem
*Brandon Sanderson
*Fjodor Dostojevskij
*Oscar Wilde
*Michail Bulgakov


While not experimenting on flies and reading I'm doing Geocaching (Geocaching profile: "Synthetical"), play boardgames, oldschool sega, Ps3, roleplaying; both book-and-dice as well as live action.

It was my wife, Lilith89, who introduced me to Bookcrossing 2016 when she started and I'm very glad she did!
