Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

""My reading has no specific goal; for me it’s rather like breathing — I have to do it in order to live,""

Writes Liu Xia, the wife of imprisoned Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo. She is isolated from all but family while her husband is in prison and she is under house arrest. Her July letter is quoted in the New York Times. The quote continues,  “When I find books that I love, I feel the author is writing for me alone, and feel a private joy.”

Liu Xia, in Beijing in 2010.
