This looks like the type of discussion board I would love to contribute to. I live in New York City surrounded by bookstores and libraries. Reading has been a life long hobby of mine with a special interest in Victorian literature including the Brontes, Charles Dickens, Willkie Collins, George Elliot, and Mary Shelley. I also love the Russian classics especially Dostoyevsky. I also enjoy biographies of historical figures particulary those of American presidents and their wives. Looking foward to being an active participant of this board.
