Brooks Hi, I'm Brooks. 31, currently in Kansas, but moving to New Mexico in a few months. I'm going to be a chemistry professor in NM, which is a realization of a dream I've had since I decided on my college major 10 years ago. Needless to say, I'm excited.

I'm a new dad, and just got to the point that I can start reading again without immediately falling asleep and having the book fall on my face. I've always been a pretty voracious reader though, so I'm happy to get back to my usual habits.

I love short stories, literary fiction, sci-fi, and I've been trying to read more non-fiction this year. I've also tried to read more books from small, independent presses this year, which has been very rewarding.

Ashley (icecheeseplease) Hello and welcome, and also congrats on the kid! I have family in Carlsbad, NM. Back when I last visited many years ago it was quite nice. There's nothing like the night stars out there, I must say- that kind of beauty simply doesn't exist in cities.
