- About My Library
- Mostly literature and fiction, but also art, history and, of course, books in Italian.
I am presently working on increasing my collection of Virago Modern Classics, and I am also interested in Australian authors, particularly women.
I also have a good collection of illustrated books.

- About Me
- I am a booklover, as simple as that. It is a "disease" I caught since I learnt to read (actually even before) and I see no sign of recovery, nor do I wish to. To my great satisfaction, my book collection is constantly increasing.....one of these days, I am afraid, we will have to vacate the premises to make room for all the books! Not that the thought prevents me from buying more, of course.
Other than this, what else could I say about myself? I am an Italian transplanted in the US. My significant other is another bookworm, member of Librarything as well, and so are two of my children.
