My mother is fond of saying that I was a rotten little child until I learned how to read. It was as if my mind was expanding out of my body, and I couldn't find a way to learn things and express myself -- and then I figured out that letters went together to make words. And I've been hooked ever since.

This listography is a way for me to keep track of the books I want to read, whether bought or borrowed. For regular updates about all things book, head on over to my blog:

Book Snobbery at Its Best

Comments, discussions, and book recommendations are always welcome and appreciated. Happy reading!
