Interests

Bart's a bibliophile. Especially when it concerns books on history, philosophy and/or physics, his interest is piqued. He can hardly walk past a bookstore without buying a book. He also enjoys running every day. Finally, he loves the good life. He loves Mediterranean food with a good glass of wine and Scotch whiskey as a finisher.
