About meI am a booklover, as simple as that. It is a "disease" I caught since I learnt to read (actually even before) and I see no sign of recovery, nor do I wish to. To my great satisfaction, my book collection is constantly increasing.....one of these days, I am afraid, we will have to vacate the premises to make room for all the books! Not that the thought prevents me from buying more, of course.
Other than this, what else could I say about myself? I am an Italian transplanted in the US. My significant other is another bookworm, member of Librarything as well, and so are two of my children.

About my libraryMostly literature and fiction, but also art, history and, of course, books in Italian.
I am presently working on increasing my collection of Virago Modern Classics, and I am also interested in Australian authors, particularly women.
I also have a good collection of illustrated books.
