I am an early 40's male from the USA. I am a long time expatriate living abroad in Bangkok where I teach math and English.
This is my latest incarnation as before I was a software developer for many many years.
I like living in a tropical climate. Now I am used to it and it feels like any temperature below 75 degrees Fahrenheit is cold.
Reading is one of my main hobbies. I know my local bookstores like the back of my hand, and constantly am prowling them for interesting books, both fiction and non-fiction. Usually for pleasure, I read science fiction or fantasy.
I also enjoy penpal-ing and I belong to both postcrossing.com and letter-exchange.com.
I am excited to read about the other interesting books readers have read through this swap-bot.
My favorite books/authors are: Stephen Donaldson's Thomas Covenant Series.
Also, Neal Stephenson's Reamde and Anthem.
I also like The Windup Girl.
I am a big fan of David Lynch and Francois Ozon. So almost anything by them is good.
Quentin Tarantino is also a favorite.
My tea preferences:
I really like green teas, especially any green Japanese or Chinese.
I don't really care for "black" teas (e.g. oolong, lipton-style).
Herbal teas are OK.
When I am in the USA, I go to Far Leaves: http://farleaves.com/
