So, introductions.

I'm not really one who joins LJ Communities, but as I'm away from University for the summer, it would be nice to have a place to bathe in the glow of literature, which doesn't happen much here. My name is Meg, currently an English major at the University of British Columbia. I'll be going into my second year there, and my first year was so wonderfully literate that now I want nothing more to do than sit and read old, smelly, library-worn books, no matter how sad and antisocial that might make me.

Anyway, my current readings for the summer are To Kill A Mockingbird, The Brothers Karamazov, Coraline, Enormous Room, Reading Lolita in Tehran, and The Complete Journals Of Sylvia Plath. I won't know what I'm reading next year yet, but the course lists for UBC come out August 1.

Also, I have plans to work on a silent film based upon Mordicai Gerenstein's The Old Country, a children's book that I fel in love with, along with some friends, last sememster.

And, um, that's about it. I live in Florida when I'm not in Vancouver, and that's boring.

So yeah, Hi, I'm quiet_cinema, and I'm new. Expect me to start fawning over classics at any time.
