Why are you interested in this group?

I love reading when I have the time, which is plentiful thanks to MRT journeys. I love a wide variety of books and I love discussing them at great lengths with anyone wishing to listen. I would like to meet like-minded people- easy-going, relaxed, open-minded..etc., Looking at some of the books you have previously read and are due to be discussed, it looks like a wonderful book club that likes to branch out away from typical classics. I dig that.

What kinds of books are you interested in?

All sorts. I have a penchant for stories about shipwrecks and water in general, animals with sentiment and whimsy. Big fan of magical realism and the bizzarre. Big fan of shock tactics in literature- books that you could never imagine being made into films (and wouldn't want to). Favourite author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Favourite books: Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor, The Life of Pi, Slaughterhouse 5, Neuromancer, Haunted, Love in the Time of Cholrea, The Rum Diary, Twenty-Something...

Anything else you'd like us to know about yourself?

I'm a nice person and I like nice people. I just occasionally like reading about people who are not.

Introduction

Hi, my name is Simone, 27, from the UK and been living in Singapore since May 2011. Since moving here, I've tucked into so many books (currently have a stack of 3 unread on my bedside table). I'm interested in good people!
