About meI *love* reading. Isn't it obvious?
I am especially preoccupied with literature from the 18th and 19th centuries - preferably British, Russian, German, and French.
I'm a great fan of historical fiction and have recently become interested in biographies of historical personages.
But to not dwell too deep into the past, I amuse myself with several modern or contemporary pieces every once in a while. I guess it's good to keep in touch with the times...

About my libraryWell... I'm a graduate of the English department of UC:Riverside (in California). That might explain some of the books that have found their way onto my library shelf. But I'm also a native Russian speaker - thus the numerous works of Russian Lit. Also, I devote some of my free time to the study of French and German, so that is why some of my language text books are listed in my library.
