Having fairly recently started up a biotech company together with some friends, I find myself with little free time between work in the lab, writing grant applications and brainstorming our strategy and future plans. So reading is taking a bit of a back seat, mostly done on the daily commute (and that commute is mercifully short). At the same time, levels of stress tend to be quite high in this business - so getting some sort of relaxation from a good book does help.

Basically, I like to read anything, preferably in the original language. Favorites are Terry Pratchett (gradually working through the Discworld), Colleen McCullough, John Irving (quite close to have read all his produce), James Michener. I've been looking for James Hogan's Giants' trilogy for a few years by now, so if anyone could spare one...

Fantasy and historical semi-true stories are my favorite categories, but I'll try any book with a nice reference.

I've decided to start a journal entry to keep track of books I'll read that are not registered at BC (after an example on tyvmdear's shelf). Some of these books may be available for loans, so please contact me if you're interested in any of them.

Anybody who's interested in any book I have: I'm open for trades! Just send me a PM and we'll work something out; anything AVL or TBR should be a possible release within, well... at most a few weeks.
