About meI was a student at the University of Iowa, pursuing a degree in classical languages (Latin, Greek, Hebrew) with a minor in ancient civilizations. My screenname comes from my favorite character in ancient literature, Clytemnestra. I specifically adore her in Agamemnon by Aeschylus (and all of the Oresteia), but fell in love with her in Iphigenia at Aulis by Euripides.

I am an INTJ in the Meyer-Briggs/Jung personality type thingamathingy.

About my libraryI worked in a bookstore for four years, and because of that, a great number of books were easily accessible to me. I used to have a much larger collection than I now have, but due to moving a few times was forced to greatly reduce the number of books I personally owned.

As such, I am going to be going through authors, trying to remember the different books I have read and mark them with the melodramatically wistful tag of 'used to own' - before I sent them to Goodwill or, you know, sold them at a tenth of their price so I could pay rent as a student. I'm only doing this with books I already read, so I hereby declare that they count!

The tag 'back burner' is for books that I am intending to read soon-ish. When I finish a book, I can look on my 'back burner' list and see what else is up next, and choose one. Yay for finally being able to remember all the books I'm meaning to read!

It's somewhere on my ever-growing to read list. I got a bunch of books waiting for review at FBS so it may be a while before I get to them.
I don't read romance in any language :P
We share only 42 books, I would have thought there'd be more. :P Judging from your library you ought to be reviewing romance novels for FBS ;)
