Look at all the new posters this summer! Welcome to you all! Let's introduce ourselves.
I'm a retired engineer and will read almost anything. I very much like to stay on top of the latest well regarded novels (as opposed to the latest best sellers - but I confess a great enjoyment of The DaVinci Code). I love science fiction, mysteries, historical novels, .... I read a lot of non-fiction in science, history, public policy, and gardening. Gave up philosopy a quarter century ago. Big fan of graphic novels. Recently rediscovered a love of classical writers and I'm working my way slowly through Herodotus.
Comfort reading: Georgette Heyer's romance novels
Most recent enthusiasm: Neal Stephenson
Last novel to put me in the Zone: Hemmingway's The Old Man and the Sea
