Welcome! I am entirely new to blogging, so bear with me for a while. I have been a voracious reader since the second grade -- at least! I have a wide range of interests, but my major collecting interests include (in no particular order): Updike, Oates, Cheever, Brookner, Atwood, Kaye Gibbons, and James Joyce. My master's thesis was on Joyce. Also there are a lot of other writers I devour without actually collecting: the Brontes, Eliot, (some) Dickens, Salter, McEwan, Russo, Homer. I also collect Tudor period biographies and letters.
