I'm an avid reader, and I want what Mark Twain suggested: to crawl into bed with a good book, or someone who's read one
What is this, Sophie's Choice? I have to choose among all the books I've ever read, as if I could even remember them all? And in what category? Fiction, maybe. American? French, Russian 19th century? English? Truly, an impossible question to answer. I'm inclined to follow the old song, If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with - and right now, that's Doris Kearns Goodwin, because I'm rereading Team of Rivals.
I'm a former scientist and now IT guy in Vancouver, WA. I'm an avid reader - fiction as well as lots of nonfiction (history, Civil War, biography, politics, science etc.) - looking for other avid readers to talk about books, good and bad, we've read.
