About meI read in three languages: English, French and Japanese. I'm currently learning to read in Spanish.
About my libraryI used to receive books for birthdays and Christmases and as a result had a considerable library for a young teenager. I would like to reconstitute some of its content on-line and also add books I've read in college as a Comparative Culture major at Sophia University or studied as a graduate student in Secondary Education at Texas A&M and in a Foreign Language Education program at the University of Texas - Austin. My library consists of books I've actually read, whether I own them or not and books I actually own but may not have read yet. Wish list holds books that I've either read or haven't read but hope to acquire or borrow and read or re-read in the future.
