About Me
I like books. I will read most anything but I am always on the look out for a good fantasy novel. Suggestions are always appreciated.

I am one of those weird people who like watching a foreign movie with subtitles or reading a book in the original language (as long as the original language is English, Italian, French or Spanish). Part of the reason why I studied Italian was because one of my goals in life was to read Dante's "Divine Comedy" in the original. Which I did, at the age of 35.

I'm also one of those people who can't seem to read only one book at a time.

Favorite books:
