I usually read physical books but I also love listening to audiobooks in my car during my commute. I read manuscripts on a Kindle but I don't have my own eReader. I'm contemplating getting a Nook but I haven't decided if I want to do that yet.
Besides books I really love classic films, cooking and learning about food, going out to eat, traveling, animals, nature, exercise & athletics, arts & culture, music, languages, etc. I'm Dominican/Portuguese/Lebanese and first-generation American. I'm fluent in Spanish and Portuguese and I didn't learn English until I went to an ESL program in Kindergarten. I'd love to learn Swedish and French so I could speak 5 languages fluently. I've lived in New England all of my life but my family is spread across North America and Europe. My wonderful husband loves books almost as much as I do.
What kind of books I will be talking about:
Non-Fiction (Science, History, Math, Food, Linguistics, etc.)
Books about or set in the Dominican Republic
Classic Film related books
Classic Children's Lit (no new children's lit and no YA)
Authors & Genres:
This is a tricky one as I like singular books rather than authors and genres. My favorite authors include Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy, Henry James, and my good friend Mark Zero. As far as genres are concerned, I don't like Fantasy, Sci-Fi and most Mystery. I used to read Romance way back when but am no longer interested in it. I also do NOT read self-published authors as I believe whole heartedly in the traditional publishing process. I only make an exception if a good friend of mine is self-published.
