About Me
I am an assistant professor of English who studies modern and contemporary drama, and I have long been absolutely addicted to expanding my proliferating collection of books - so addicted that my rate of consumption has never matched my rate of acquisition, even when I attempted to put myself on a book diet (!!). My boyfriend has now been muttering "too many books, too many books" steadily under his breath for several years. I also have a somewhat compulsive fondness for lists, so I am simultaneously pursuing the quests of reading "The 1001 Books you Must Read before you Die" and watching "The 1001 Movies you must see before Die." Can you guess which one is progressing more quickly?
