Extended Profile

Hello, everybody!

I am a freelance translator, and I love books!
My favourite genres: thrillers, horror, good old-fashioned whodunits, biographies of interesting people, particularly Hollywood stars.
I like everything associated with the Tudors, with Henry VIII at the top.
I also like Pre-raphaelite images and pictures.
I love short stories: ghost short stories are the best for me!!
No chick-lit or science fiction, please, except for classics in the latter.
I am very fond of cats, and anything cat-related.
I adore chocolate (though I should stay away from it), and different-flavoured teas / coffees / chocolate drinks.
BC labels and stickers are always handy.
I love scented candles and soaps, and in general anything which smells nice. :)

I have recently moved, I no longer rent a flat, but have moved to my own. Very excited, but still surrounded by unpacked boxes.
So be patient with me if I owe you anything, and please don't send anything to my old address." width=150 height=20 border=0>" target=_blank>

Becoming a BC member has been one of the best choices I have ever made...
If there is anything in my AVLs that you fancy, feel free to PM me; I am always happy to send RABCKs, trade books... anything to keep those books going!

Sorry if sometimes I seem to keep them too long; I sincerely promise I do my best to read them as fast as possible. Moreover, this bookshelf is always updated...

Thanks for reading this!

And I am a Winner again! On June, 2009, I have won the Second INTL Book and Bookmark Laugh Day Contest.

You Are "I Want to Hold Your Hand"" height="100" width="100">

You are sweet, expressive, and the truest romantic around.

Love inspires you, and you're the type of person who always has a muse.

You are good at expressing yourself. You are quite a verbal charmer.

You could woo anyone into falling in love with you. You wouldn't fall for just anyone though.

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence" height="100" width="100">

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.

An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.

You are also good at remembering information and convicing someone of your point of view.

A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.

You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

You're Anne of Green Gables!

by L.M. Montgomery

Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage
cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash,
honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt
your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with
kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters.
You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.
