About meI've been a bookworm for as long as I can remember. My dream job would involve me getting paid to do nothing but read the books I want to read. Historical fiction is my favorite (if it is well-written and about a time period/place/person/subject I am interested in) but I like to read other genres as well.
About my libraryMy LT Library contains books I own, books I have read but don't own, and a few that I want to read in the future. My actual library contains books I've collected since childhood, some travel guides and books for learning languages, and books I've bought at thrift stores and used bookshops. I rarely buy new books, but I have unexpectedly found some gems at secondhand shops.
