Over mijI'm a thirty-something father, husband, and pretentious book nerd living in South Carolina. I was once an idealistic English Major all full of piss and vinegar with designs of becoming a college professor. Now I'm an IT security professional working in Corporate America. Oh, I'm still full of piss and vinegar, but now it's less idealistic piss and vinegar.

I'm still true to my bookish roots, though. As I suspect is a given for anyone who takes the time to fill out a profile on this site, I love books. I'm not the fastest reader, nor do I have the most prolific collection, but the written word is one of my biggest passions--the others being family, fishing, and football. I could probably toss in "headbanging to any and all things METAL!" but that would ruin the alliteration of the previous statement.

I'm also a wannabe literary critic, and I run my own blog called I Read a Book Once... where I post book reviews, author profiles, and other bookish news. The book reviews posted here also find their way back to LibraryThing, where I try ("try" being the operative word) to rate and review all my recently read books. I also participate in the LT Early Reviewers program as well as NetGalley review offerings, which keeps my "to read" stack nice and hefty. And if you can stand dealing with an know-it-all English nerd, I would welcome any discussions on all things books.

Over mijn boekenMy library is pretty eclectic. Represented here are horror, fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, historical non-fiction, philosophy, military, spy, and thriller works. But by far the most prevalent are mystery, crime, and literary classics.

I'm a great fan of the Noir or hardboiled genre, so a lot of my books fit into that niche. The classical works are mandatory for my educational background. And as might be expected, I tend to gravitate toward older, more established works--the classics of the genre, so to speak. My wife's books are included in the "my library" section, but they've also got their own collection entitled "Becky's Books" so as to keep them somewhat distinct.

I'm going to try to review and rate all of the books that I've read, but right now that's a daunting process. I'm concentrating on reviewing those works in my "reading list" collections, as those are the most recent reads and the freshest in memory. My goal is to write a review for everything I read from here-on out, and then work backward to review past reads.
