I've just signed up here and I'm looking forward to meeting people and talking about books! I'm a female nearing retirement, and I have at the moment about six boxes of unread books (don't ask how many "already read" books I've got!) I read just about anything, although I really like historical mysteries, fantasy, classical science fiction (Asimov, Clarke, Niven, etc.), anything about Tudor and medieval England, the Harry Potter series, and all of Terry Pratchett's works. However, I'll read anything if it catches my interest. I share my house with 2 cats and have a parttime job ... not in a book store, luckily.
