“I’m quite illiterate, but I read a lot.” — J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
Who are you?
My name is Marion, I am a French girl who has been a movie/film enthusiast for quite a long time now and I have rediscovered the joys of reading for pleasure not that long ago. And now that I’ve started again, I can’t stop.
What is that “illiterate” business about?
I have a Master’s Degree in English (from a French university). However, this degree does not make me feel like I am more knowledgeable on the matter than anyone else. A lot of book enthusiasts out there with no degree are much more knowledgeable than I am.
It’s also a quote from The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, and for some reason, it resonated with me the moment I read it. So there you go.
Why did you create this blog?
