I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library – Jorge Luis Borges


The first real book I remember reading was Matilda by Roald Dahl. I was seven then. You can find me deep in a Haruki Murakami novel, or on an adventure with Ernest Hemingway. These days, I prefer reading non-fiction titles about sociology and philosophy, caring for animals, and anthropology.
