Well, I have my book library set up with the Library Thing. It may now look like a lot of books, but i am a pretty busy person with work and so forth. Listed are the books that I really enjoy. I enjoy good fiction no matter how far fetched it might get. After all, the purpose of good fiction is to escape reality for a bit an put yourself in the hero spot.
