If you like to read, you have come to the right place!
Thanks to a runaway curiosity, I read books from every genre I can think of, and they’re all likely to make an appearance here. Russian/British/American classics, biographies of every stripe, literary memoirs, scientific tomes, 19th-century Children’s fantasy stories, great fiction of every kind…good heavens, it goes on and on. (And those are just from my personal stash.)
My only criteria are an interesting subject and really good writing. “Good writing” is, of course, a somewhat subjective term. But here’s the deal: I have been reading like a maniac since I was five years old – and that was a long time ago, thank you very much. That really shy, bespectacled kid in the corner, the one who got the nervous sweats when she was forced to go outside and play dodgeball with the other children? That was me. My best guess is that, in the years since kindergarten, I have read at least 3500 books.
Downside: I developed bad social skills, and I ruined my eyes. (Seriously. I’m practically blind without my contacts.) Upside: well, if you spend that much of your life consuming something, you tend to develop good taste buds.
My goal is to tell you about 1-2 books a week (among other things.) I’d better get cracking.
