Informazioni su di meEx-physicist. Mathematical recreations and puzzle books were my first love. Then, I consumed YA adventure/detective/thriller genres, exhausting a few blockbuster authors. I never read the newspapers, but to do the crossword puzzle. Now, older and wiser, I am drawn to literature, some classics, and history (the newspapers I did not read in my nerdy childhood and wasted youth are now history).

Financial institutions and instruments, and the management of risk in the banking industry, as well as financial portfolios are my current and over-arching interest.

Although I hardly get the time to play nowadays, I am crazy about contract bridge.(Bridge is addictive. Bridge is a harder game than chess. I believe that book learning and rubber bridge are neccessary to become a good bridge player.

La mia bibliotecaPast interests include physics. These days, classics interest me more than fiction. I like to read books about literature. Occasionally discover a Indian writer.

I browse used bookshops, collect via online listings, and via auction (yeah, eBay) sites. Over the years, I have been able to patiently find Alain White's Christmas series (limited edition chess problem books) through the occasional listing, or from Strand's New York. I don't like Strand's much these days.

I have avoided the bestseller category successfully except, I am loath to admit, for Harry Potter.( With all these copies on the shelves of LibraryThing folk, when will they ever be recycled to pulp?) Thus, I hope to be a "long tail" reader. I do have a few bestsellers like the Ramayana in my collection, that I like.

I collect books on chess problems in just about any language which I don't understand such as Russian, Slovak, Dutch, German...

I chanced upon the works of Edward Gorey, loved his art, and went on a collecting spree. Luckily, Gotham Book Mart, a goldmine of Gorey originals, New York, NY was on the walk to work. Some Gorey books I own:

Pointless mysteries with quirky wit or attitude(Kinky Friedman, van de Wetering) are starting to take attention over nail-biting, closed box mysteries (Agatha Christie, Conan Doyle).
