About meI love to spend my time reading, getting lost in other worlds and other peoples lives.

About my libraryI'm not going to catelogue all of my books as I just don't have the time, I will add books as I am reading them.
I love reading modern literature, particuarly literature set in foreign locations.

Hi Katrina, although I don't know you I miss you on LT and the 1001 thread. You always seem to like just the same books as I do and I often look what you wrote about a book before starting it myself! I hope to 'see' you again here soon!
Hello and Congratulations for winning a copy of the eBook fairy tale SALT. Please let me know the format you would prefer (.mobi or pdf) either by leaving me a comment or by emailing:

I hope you enjoy the story!

Have a wonderful weekend, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Take Care,

Amy Marshall
Even though we share only one book, I am absolutely enthralled by your notion of the Olympic challenge. There are so many superb works that were not originally in English! Best of luck. I'll be following your quest and looking for tips on best works. If you'd like the world lit list that's used by the International Baccalaureate, I'd be glad to attach it to you. (That's a worldwide organization that structures a curriculum used at schools around the world.)

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked The Wasp Factory, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Hey! Thanks for starting the Robin McKinley thread!! I am so glad you enjoyed Beauty.
Just saw your post on the 'Brits' thread and wanted to say hi and welcome. This is one of the most addictive things I've ever done, with the single exception of tobacco and I don't do that any more. I do hope you get to enjoy it as much as I have. I'm kind of 'collecting' a few UKers, as it's easy to feel left out when everyone else is discussing some book that isn't even out over here yet. For some reason, out of all the Brits on that thread, I rarely 'see' any on the 'chat' pages. Maybe it's that good old British reserve. Come and have a good gab with us any time you feel like it.
Best wishes
hi katrina, nice to see you here.
