Hi, dear readers, and welcome!
My name is Ekaterina, Kate if you are too lazy to use the full version (and I'm completely OK with that!). On the Internet, I usually go by nickname Arenel, which is derived from the name of a Silmarillion heroine. You can tell that I'm a long-time Tolkien fan by now, right? To confirm your suspicions here's a picture of me all excited about a new beautiful edition of LotR. Yes, I know I look crazy)
I'm somewhere in the middle of my Ph.D. in computer science, which doesn't stop me from passionately learning languages too. Who said that a technical mind and a humanitarian mind are mutually exclusive?
Here I post honest and sometimes totally BIASED reviews of all the random stuff that somehow ends up on my shelves. If you don't want to miss a thing, please follow the blog using any of the options on the top of the sidebar!
In case you'd like your book reviewed, please contact me through my Google+ account. I've agreed to do this a couple of times in the past, and I'll do it again if the book genuinely interests me. But beware that I won't say it's good if I don't like it! Honesty is the first rule!
I have an affiliate account at Book Depository, so in case you decide to purchase something through links in my posts, I'll get a small commission at no additional cost to you (hasn't happened yet, but who knows? :))
Hope you enjoy this space! Glad to have you here!
