I just discovered this wiki and expect to be spending time here.
I love books, but don't spend nearly as much time reading as I would like, generally only one or two books a week. I can remember the days when I would read three or four books in a day, rising with a book in my hand, eating breakfast while reading, walking to school while reading, listening to a lecture that was my one break from reading, and then reading until I fell asleep. Ah, youth!
I am one of the authors of DesignPatterns, the editor of several more, and a frequent author. But I think of myself more as a reader than an author. Forty-two years of reading everything in sight has fixed that perspective in me.
