Hi, I’m Diana. I’m a rare books librarian currently working in the antiquarian book trade and apparently think I have too much time on my hands.
I read my first Shakespeare play on my own when I was 13 because I was upset that my English class wasn’t tackling the Bard while my friend’s classes were. I was further disappointed when we only “got through” a handful of Shakespeare’s plays during high school (I use that term loosely because sometimes we didn’t even finish the plays).
I always wanted to go back and read all of Shakespeare’s works, and this seemed like a perfect time.
