I figured a quick and nifty way to give a general idea of what kind of books I like was just to show you what books I've read so far this year. For the record I'm currently half way through Catcher in the Rye (I started it in earnest Yesterday) and a third of the way into Perdido Street Station (I've been reading that for a week or two). The rest I've read right through - and also enjoyed a lot.
At the moment I'd say that my favourites are Orlando and How to be Lost. Love as a Foreign Language also makes me fantastically happy and I've already put off picking up volume 4 for too long.
