About me"Happiness is... a new batch of books in your favorite bookstore."
Girl from Shangri-la.


I'm just a cheerful little person who happens to enjoy reading books. Inmensely. I'm also a big talker, so don't be frightened if I ambush you with comments and questions: I do that all the time. ;-) I'm also a very bad correspondent, often forgetting to check my messages or write back to contacts. Sorry!

I apologize beforehand for any spelling or grammar mistakes. English is only my second language, but also my top favorite.

I'm trying to fill up my shelves with more and more literature (I use the word loosely), and that's how I came to LT.

Oh, and I live in a cute little house atop a tropical mountain in South America. I love it here! :-)

Oh yes, and this:

About my libraryMy library is ecclectic, dangerously teetering on the verge of randomness, even though I do have a rather marked preference for fiction -the Master of which is, of course, Jane Austen.

Although, I have the attention span of a mosquito, so I can't focus on just one genre at a time (heavens, not even one *book* at a time) and am constantly trying new things. Hence the gee-ee-ee-normous list of unfinished books.

Some of my collections overlap, and sadly I think the largest one is my wishlist. **I strongly recommend you to use my suggested view when checking my shelves out.** And I love feedback, so please drop in a message if you have anything to say. :-)

Have fun perusing through my shelves. If you need me for anything, I'll be in the kitchen preparing some tea. Feel free to drag a chair, or arrange some cushions over the carpet.
