About meWell, obviously I love books! My home is filled with books, and I just love buying new ones. I especially love going to antique shops and searching for beautiful old books. My favorite find is a volume of tragic Shakespeare plays; it's from 1860! Apart from my love of books, I attend college, I love movies and acting, traveling, and art. Historical fashion is also interesting to me, and I love costumes.

About my libraryMy library ranges from the classics, to current novels. Even though I wouldn't say my favorite genre is fantasy, that's typically what I'm reading (what can I say, I'm a nerd!)and what's prominent in my library. I read what keeps my interest, so I don't just stick to one type of book, though it's obvious I'm most interested in historical fiction, fantasy novels, and books about ancient egypt (oh, and a little poetry and some biographies for good measure). I have a short comment/mini review for each book I catalog and then a summary for some books (it just depends on what I'm really familiar with, and what I can't remember. Very technical, right?)

What I'm Reading: His Dark Materials (I'm on the Amber Spyglass right now - very interesting)

GroupsAncient Egypt, Historical Fiction, Hogwarts Express, I Love Jane Austen, Livejournalers, Rare, Old or Offbeat, Read YA Lit, Southern Vampires

Favorite authorsJane Austen, William Goldman, Ian McEwan, J. K. Rowling, William Shakespeare, J. R. R. Tolkien (Shared favorites)

Hi, Becky how are you
Hi!
Sookie Stackhouse books are so addictive. I'm on Living Dead in Dallas right now. Do you like the show? I've only seen episode 1 and I'm kinda disappointed. I like the girl and the vampire's cool but the 'sexy' parts are just annoying and gratuitous. But I think I'll still try watching the rest of Season 1 :)
Did you ever read any of the Dresden Files? I'm supposed to get Book 11, I can't wait!!! I love Dresden

His Dark Materials are on my list too...so many books, so little time
Hello.
Its me again. I was looking over your library and I noticed that you have read some of Charlaine Harris' books. I was wondering if you've seen the HBO series True Blood? What are your thots? I really like the show and did not realize until just recently that it was based on a series of books.

By the way I totally agree with your thots on the end of Atonement. If it had ended all happy and roses, we would have all loved that but the book would have been less memorable. To answer your question, I did like the movie as well. I like Keira Knightley(though I think she needs to broaden her acting range) but I am finding that most of my friends don't. Not sure why. The little girl who played Briony was excellent. And that type writer soundtrack was genius. Also Claire Delune has never seemed so haunting.

Alrighty, I am off to plan world domination :) Talk to you soon.

Trish
Becky,
Thank you for adding me to you interesting libraries. I am always surprised when anyone thinks my library is worthy of their notice.

Isn't Jane Austen great?! I love her. Many times I almost wish I I could read Pride and Prejudice again for the first time.

I love your profile picture, I sometimes wish I could wear old gowns like that but somehow I think that my co workers would be a bit horrified if I showed up one monday morning decked out in such finery.

I see you also loved Atonement. When I got to the end, I nearly fainted. That was when my hatred of Briony took on a whole new life of its own. For me it was her ultimate act of arrogance. Much as most people I know thought the end was the worst thing about the book and made them hate it, I thought it was genius.

Anyways, great talking to you and I hope we can do it often.
Patricia
