About meI vacillate between fantastic fiction, my first love, histories of various French uprisings, books about deaf culture, and Star Wars. I try to catalog everything I pick up, whether I finish it or not, just as a support to my sieve-like memory.

About my libraryI sometimes get the actual feeling my bookshelves look on in hopeless envy at my recently-acquired Nook. Certainly they are more rigourously organized than the digital version.
