About My Library
Mostly literary fiction, foreign language titles and linguistics/lit crit/philosophy, plus sf/fantasy and historical fiction for leisure. Approximately half my library is still in storage on the other side of the Atlantic.

I've mostly listed only books that I actually possess, as my tastes in books have changed tremendously since adolescence; although the "read but unowned" collection does include a sampling of books I've read over the years which are still meaningful to me in some way.
About Me
Trained as a literary scholar (German and classics). Language geek. Reenactor and amateur seamstress.

Originally from Colorado. Now an academic editor and translator in Germany.
