About my libraryFew things delight me more than a stack of books, yet to be read, on my table... I read in English and in Russian. I read library books, and at the same time I enjoy compiling a library of my own - with the idea that when or if I reach a ripe old age and cannot go to the library I can spend my days reading my own books, especially the classics, but also contemporary favorites. I hope I never stop "inhaling the enchanted scent of promise that comes with all new books" (Carlos Ruiz Zafon).

The books recorded here are mostly the ones I have read since I joined LibraryThing, plus a few more that I remembered to list from before. I am continuing with the same process.


Favorite authorsBoris Akunin, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Margaret Atwood, Dan Brown, Deepak Chopra, Fyodor Dostoevsky, John Galsworthy, Stuart M. Kaminsky, Jhumpa Lahiri, Andreï Makine, Alexandra Marinina, W. Somerset Maugham, Vladimir Nabokov, Romain Rolland, Jose Saramago, Alexander McCall Smith, Eckhart Tolle (Shared favorites)
