...I just got 8 new ones....  :0

Uh, I don't know that I have a main genre.  I read very widely in everything.  I have a lot of fantasy (from earlier...Tolkien was one of my first loves and I have most of his collected works).  Rowling also has a place of honor on my shelf), classics are a big staple (Austen, Shakespeare, Keats...there's a lot), mythology (particularly Norse), I collect collections of ghost stories from everywhere I go, so I have, Homer, a bunch of Biblical scholarship a lot of those...I have lots of detective fiction (Including old editions of all of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels), lots of Spanish Vanguardista books (Borges and Cortazar rock my world...Cortazar is a bit hard to find in translation though).  Lessee...lots of manga (including the entirity of the out of print Sailor Moon chix manga), anime art books...I'm liking contemporary stuff right now.  Sherman Alexie (a splendid Native American author -  try either Indian Killer or The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven (a collection of short stories) and Ian McEwan (Atonement is brilliant and might appeal to your romantic sensibilities).

After way too much information, I'll just say that I'm widely read because I can't pick anything!  :0

it'll be worth it. I've actually had to use my passport a couple times here in the states. Really just twice because the bouncers at bars thought my license was fake. ("Yes I really am 24. No thats not fake. Yes I am aware its bent and the top layer is peeling. Fine let me go get my passport and show you.") urgh. That really hasnt happened since I updated and got my new license. But really my old one was a little icked up but still it had all the security features still on it and all. But que sara sara.
