Your reading habits are sort of similar to what mine used to be when my eyes were still healthy enough for long periods of reading. It's always been rare, however, that I've had enough money to do any binge-buying, although that would be my inclination when possible, more often a matter of having to choose between a couple of books and save the other until I could afford it. But nevertheless I would accumulate a stack to be read though I'd be the one who might knock it over since I don't have any pets. And like you I read books to the end, although I might have two or three in process at the same time. I'd guess our reading matter isn't very similar though.
Not sure what you mean by the online library. I read a fair amount of stuff online but it's hard on my eyes because of the white backgrounds. I do have a page of PC Kindle books because they are cheaper than paper and I can change the color of the background which helps. Being able to zoom the image also helps a lot. I do miss being able to make notes in the margins though. But what's the online library?
Interesting. I don't read much fiction any more unless I hear of something that's supposed to be especially good. Your list got me interested in the Anna Burns book for instance.
I really don't like fantasy or science fiction at all. My best friend in high school was an avid science fiction reader so because of her I made a big effort to like the stuff, but really I hated it. Fantasy too. Also made a huge effort for C.S. Lewis' Narnia stories and his friend Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Hard to say why I hate that stuff but I do. Also made myself see the Ring Trilogy movies and hated those as well except for enjoying some of the special effects. Love the architecture of the elven city of Rivendell for instance. If the camera wanted to roam through it for hours that would make me happy. But I digress.
For the last thirty years or so my reading list has been heaviest on theology and Christian books in general. That's where we would differ most I'm sure.
I don't have a Kindle, I have an Amazon Kindle page on my PC. Keeps me glued to the computer unfortunately. I'm glad I can make the background dark for the sake of my eyes though.
Yes I am familiar with the Gutenberg Project but haven't checked them out in a long time.
One site that used to be a favorite of mine is Christian Classics Ethereal Library. I think I've lost touch with some of these sources because I just don't read as much as I used to since my eyes have been deteriorating.
