Notes about authors are traditionally written in the third person but I don’t like to refer to myself as “she”. Even if Xenophon and Julius Caesar did write about themselves in the third person, a) I’m not as famous and b) I’m not pretending to be impartial.

Biographical facts are boring so I’m going to keep this short and sweet (and completely useless):

I’m a reader (of underrated books, apparently). I read anywhere and everywhere, including the bath tub, and despite my best efforts I’ve ruined many a good book by dropping them into the water. I drowned so many books that I became quite a specialist in wet book rescue; if you’re in need of help, I’ve got a page specifically dedicated to this on my blog (you must have known the advertising was coming).

Waterblogged: Dry Thoughts on Damp Books – mostly about classics, history and travel – is the third best thing on the internet. (The second is Project Gutenberg. You can make up your mind regarding the first.) I have no excuse for blogging other than I graduated in literature (twice, in different languages, so you’re supposed to take me twice as seriously). My family already heard my opinion on books, so I decided to spare them and bore the world instead.
