Favourite Book as a child

I never read. Hence, catching up now. Honesty is wonderful indeed!

Favourite Book as an adult

Elegance of the Hedgehog, loved Anna Karenina (Tolstoy, but not so much Anna or Vronsky), The Partner by John Grisham, Half-Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls (she is an amazing writer), The Stranger by Camus, etc, etc.

Favourite author/s

Tolstoy, Jeannette Walls, still learning who I like to be honest (Melville, not so much, though I know I shouldn't say that out loud; oh well...).

Classic book you want to read but haven't yet

War and Peace, Marcel Proust's Swann's Song, The Portrait of a Lady by James, Three Men in a Boat, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Lolita...

Best excuse for not reading a classic book

Ignorance of a great classic even existing.

Introduction

Hello. I am from Virginia, but live in Cambridge now; finishing up grad school, desperately needing to start/finish a thesis, but procrastinating with great books, etc., etc.
