Do me a favour:
You take this book
and read it some time.
And then later on,
you can tell me what you think.
ATTENTION: NAME CHANGE (FEB. 2021)! Please contact my BC address buddies (see below)! :)
I read books in English and German (and easy ones in French), in almost any genre (except chicklit and most books that count as "romance" - unless they're written by Chuck Tingle). Whenever possible, I prefer to read books in their original language. I'm especially fond of SFF and anything with tentacles, and recently I find myself picking up a lot of nonfiction and auto/biographies, too. When I'm having a bad day and need some cheering up, I eat chocolate and/or pastries and binge on mysteries or comics/graphic novels/manga. I also have a growing collection of international myths and fairy tales.
I'm a vegetarian. If you send sweets in a RABCK, swap or sweepstakes parcel, please make sure they don't contain gelatin. I like chocolate (milk and white is fine, nuts and fillings too, dark not so much, and chili is out of the question - also please real sugar, not stevia), flavoured hot chocolate, cookies, and salted caramel anything. And I love (original red) Twizzlers (which I can't get around here) and mochi (especially taro or pandan flavour). I also like all kinds of teas and tisanes.
For anyone wanting to send me something as a surprise while RABCK.com is down, please contact linguistkris or Plum-crazy, who hold my address for this purpose.
