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 had a considerable library as a result for a young teenager. I hope to reconstitute some of its content on-line and also add books I've read at Sophia University as a Comparative Culture major 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 currently own them or not and books I actually own but may not have gotten around to reading yet. Wish list contains books that I've either read or haven't read but hope to acquire or borrow and read or re-read in the future.
