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. If I’m not actively engaged in one of the above, I’m probably sleeping.
About my libraryI am especially fond of non-U.S. fiction. I read American fiction too, but much prefer non-U.S. authors. I find I learn more that way--probably also why I love traveling so much. This little map covers the homes (sometimes the birthplaces) of the authors represented in my library. No goals--but I do hope to expand it a bit more.
