Sobre mimImage is Amedeo Modigliani's Woman With Red Hair, 1917.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaExcept for Early Review books, which I review no matter what, I tend to only review books I loved. I feel I'm only soaking up enough and giving the author a fair chance if I'm loving it. So bad reviews are going to be rare here. It doesn't mean I'm not judgemental, it just means you'll never know how I really feel about Robert Ludlum's writing style. :)

I've thought about using really cryptic tags that are meaningful only to me, but I love finding new books through all of you and the tags that bind us together.

Even though the tags are prosaic, the books are not. I adore American history, and these days it's a comfort to me to know where we come from, instead of dwelling on where we are now. It's "contemporary history" that fascinates me the most - when they first started teaching me about the Civil Rights Movement in school, some of those events had only happened a mere 20 years earlier. And even though it's been another 20 years since then, I keep it frozen in time. The fact that a band of visionaries could change an entire country - could restore the honor of a people who had so debased themselves with the immorality of racism and exploitation - inspires me everyday. We can restore ourselves again. And the poets I collect are special because they convey the feelings of nations as they change in history; the morals, manners, emotions, taboos, and dreams of a people are writ not in scholarly works, but in the verses of Whitman, Ginsberg, Parker, Rossetti, and Shakespeare. I love the rest of my books as well, but the rest touch me in smaller ways. For moral and spiritual sustenance, I have my poets, my civil rights workers, and my beautiful, rejuvenating myths.
