What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

The Enchanted Wanderer

The Enchanted Wanderer - Nikolai Leskov, Ian Dreiblatt Man is supposed to be destined to be in the church, and when he ignores destiny bad things happen. It's a pretty standard plot, but hearing it in a 19th century Russian adaptation was interesting more academically than in a "oh hey look this is a great novel" sort of way.
