Acerca de Mim
LOVE, LOVE to read. One of my favorite books of all times is Pride and Prejudice. However, I read everything from Middle East politics to Emily Bronte. I think that my reading preferences and all my interests in general are so varied. Example: My favorite magazines/periodicals are The O magazine/Real Simple(that is how I found out about LT after all) and The Foreign Affairs Journal. So I have no idea if that gives a hint as to who I am.

I have recently developed an obsession with cookbooks. I have no idea where this is going but lets just say that I have bought three/four cook books in as many weeks. A tad troubling.
