About meMy passions are traveling, food (http://www.lthforum.com), photography, foreign films, used-book shopping, music (especially classical and gypsy music from Hungary and Romania) and, of course, reading (http://worldliteratureforum.com). If I’m not actively engaged in one of the above, I’m probably sleeping.
About my libraryI have always enjoyed reading fiction, especially fiction by authors outside the USA. I read American fiction too, occasionally, but much prefer non-U.S. authors because I learn more that way--probably also why I love traveling so much.
