About me"Like all those possessing a library, Aurelian was aware that he was guilty of not knowing his in its entirety." Jorge Luis Borges

"Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author's words reverberating in your head." From "The Brooklyn Follies" by Paul Auster

Voracious reader, music lover, movie watcher, daydreamer!
