Homeland Security Advisory System reports a current Terror Level of: Ernie


I like to read. A LOT. I have a Mt TBR as tall as me, and I'm studying, so naturally I'm finding it necessary to reread all the Harry Potters.

My current bookcrossing project (after a long hiatus) is to release 100 books before I move house in 18 days!

I love:
* Indian literature and non-fiction (Vikram Seth, Arundhati Roy, Chitra Divakaruni)
* Cyberpunk and Gen-X literature (Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Douglas Coupland, Dave Eggers)
* Travel fiction and memoirs
* Anything on Buddhism or Buddhist meditation.

My Wish List(With thanks to cliff1976)
