About meI am an ordinary biochemist working in a molecular biology lab and trying to confirm/reject some simple scientific hypotheses. English, obviously, is not my first language but it is the one that I speak and read most often; sometimes I even think in English. I am deeply concious how bad it really is, but I am constantly working to improve it.
About my libraryIt is a very modest one with a modest ambition to grow in the future. For now I have stopped expanding it for one simple reason: the number of unread books is really shameful. I read slowly and thoughtfully, I like to imagine and experience everything I read to the fullest degree I can. I have read a little but I venture to claim that I have read it well. I hope this will remain so in future. My favourite books are those which bear rereading and rediscovering from time to time.
