Evan

I'm Evan and I'm not happy unless I'm reading 9 books at once and then forgetting what's going on in each of them. I mostly read nonfiction: world history, nature, any science, and Buddhism are my favorite subjects. I'll read any kind of fiction, but especially horror (which I then regret when I'm home alone), anything lgbt+, and mystery.
