How I became a...
___________________________________________

I am a student, a reader, a translator, a writer and a reviewer, living in Budapest, Hungary.
I am a graduate with English and Librarian majors, and I have enrolled to a master's program in European Studies and Global Affairs..
I write mainly poems. I like rock music, good movies and I am also interested in politics.

It just seemed natural.

My taste in books:

Favorite authors:

Classics, science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime stories, humorous books and anything well-written.
I also read non-fiction books. Genre-crossing is also something I like. And genre poetry, (I even write such poems).

Douglas Adams, Dean R: Koontz, William Gibson, and many others.

What makes a book a keeper?

What makes me throw a book at the wall?

A writer who knows how to write.

I never throw books at the wall.

My favorite genre and why?

My least favorite genre and why?

I do not have one particular favourite.

I do not read romance fiction because I find it boring. Some elements of romance are okay for me, but if the book is written just for the sake of telling a story about a boy who meets a girl, I won't read it.

My bathroom library:

My to be read list:

I never take books with me to the bathroom.

A great many of books, all sorts.

My favorite links:

My favorite reading snack:

http://www.euobserver.com/ http://www.sfcrowsnest.com/index.php And, of course, Yahoo and Gmail.

It depends. I try not to snack while reading, it's not very healthy. (Though this does not mean that I can always resist the temptation.) I drink a lot of coffee, (a bit too much, I think). And sometimes tea, too.
