• What do you like to read? I am Literature college graduate, so I am very fond of typical classic stuff. I read tons of T.S. Eliot, Fernando Pessoa, Whitman, James Joyce, Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf. I have no preferences for genres, really. I like reading poetry and prose. I hardly ever read "blockbuster literature" such as Harry Potter, Khaled Hosseini, and others of the kind. I am slightly prejudiced against feminist literature ( blame it on four long college years studying this on a daily basis... ).

• What kinds of books do you avoid like a bad cliche? Self-help books, cheesy romances, teen books, terror and/or "mystical" stories, police/thriller books.

• How quickly and how often do you read? Depends immensely on the quality of the book, my interest for it and my daily schedule and a teacher. Usually, I read quite fast.

• What's in your current "To Read" pile? "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyews and The Dark Tower series by Stephen King - friend's requests. In my personal list is Ulysses, by James Joyce ( started reading it and abandoned it a bunch of times ), couple of Brazilian books such as Sagarana, and some João Cabral de Melo Neto poetry; in Portuguese I still wanna ready Saramago's books and I wanna read some more plays by Tennessee Williams.
