Profile Information

Reading Preference:
My reading preferences change sometimes I love to read only literary fiction, then its political books, children's books, memoirs, poetry, history, gardening,really I think there are too many genres to list here.
Favorites:
One of my all time favorites is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
At 15, the biography, Zelda introduced me to mental health issues and has stayed with me.
Fahrenheit 451 is another favorite and a reminder to me how important books are for a free society. Recently I have love The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
