I'm a GoodReads user testing new waters after the serious website changes. I mostly read fiction, usually Anglophone classics/ modern classics; I like nonfiction (mostly social and cultural history), good fantasy and graphic novels. For guilty pleasure, I read advice and how-to books. I made at least two reading resolutions recently; 1. read less, live more; 2. read books which give me more pleasure. I have poor filters, and books I find stylistically pleasing tend to be depressing, so I need to do something about that; if you think you know a book that is very well written, but won't make me weep, please drop me a line.


Harlem - Tomasz Zalewski Raczej proste wprowadzenie niż monografia; książka napisana dziennikarskim stylem, dużo relacji o ludziach, bardzo szybko się czyta. Trochę nowych dla mnie informacji o historii Harlemu.
