I think they would correctly come the conclusion I am obsessed with Historical Fiction as the bulk of my reading tends to be in that genre. I don't know why , I just seem to able to get more into a story if it's set in a period that I like.
It's rare that I write modern day stuff, although I'm going to try more.
I also have quite a lot of romance, although I don't like all of it and I get annoyed with Regenccy Romance, because there is such a glut in the market and it's gets very dull reading about umpteen improbable dukes who happen to fall madly in love with a fiesty governess and do not behave remotely like anyone from that time actually would.
I also have quite an extensive collection of non fiction for research - biographies and history books.
Им просто нечего будет сказать...немая сцена. Никто не может быть равнодушен к книгам, просто многие скрывают свои чувства слишком глубоко.
They'd think I love chemistry. Which I don't. =/
Если посмотреть на мою полку, то вы не уведите на ней много книг. Да! их мало но каждая книга стоящая на моей полке очень дорога мне.. она перечитана по многу раз..Каждая напоминает мне о каком то пережитом событии.
Что они увдят... да это просто ужас. Ничего. Кроме книг, касающейся мой работы там ничего нет. А ведь, в своё время, по-юности, я много читал.
That I am a *geek* with weird tastes???

Well hello there lj:
Quick update before I have to leave work:
MR. SEXY BALLROOM MAN IS DATING MY SUPREMELY AWESOME SWING DANCE TEACHER!!!!!
*insert dramatic telenovela music here*
I am super depressed because I love Mary and she's a great teacher and they are kind of like really cute together...but now I can't hate her for being Mr. Sexy Ballroom Man's girlfriend, because she's a actually a decent human being and good for him. (It would be SOOOOOO much easier if he were dating someone icky and nasty that I could be totally justified in hating since they would be a waste of human space and totally unworthy of Mr. Sexy's awesomeness.)
Universe I firmly believe that when you slam a door in my face you open a window somewhere, but do you think that maybe, just once, YOU COULD NOT SLAM THE FREAKING DOOR IN TEH FIRST PLACE?!?!?!?!?!?
I WILL find another Sexy Ballroom Man! I will! *clearly not in this town because all the rest of the people I see at the studio are either at least twice my age or with their significant other.* But I am bound and determined to find me a man *or woman at this point in my life I'm not too picky* who can stomp the boards and do some dancing with me! *and I mean DANCING. not the ass wiggling shuffling from foot to foot that passes as dancing in clubs these days*
In other news...yeah not much other news. Will return when something of interest happens.
Pip pip Cheerio!
That I'm quite a book-worm, that I'm childish, that I love to read, That I'm completely messy, that I'm fluid in two languages, that I'm more into fiction books than non-fiction ones, that I'm a women(!!), that I have a very wide range of interests.. And funny thing? none of this conclusions would be wrong....
Ummm.... I need a real man in my life instead of smutty romance novels? Eh, sounds about right. XP
