Hello and welcome to Kristina’s Book Review Podcast. I’m Kristina. It’s going to be a brief introduction about me. So, “fasten your seatbelts it’s going to be a bumpy night!” Not really, I just like this Bette Davis’ line from “All about Eve”.
Anyway, let me tell you about myself in a nutshell so you can imagine who you are listening to.
Firstly, let me ask you a question: “Have you ever read “Matilda” by British writer Roald Dahl?” And if so, I have something in common with Matilda – four-year-old girl. And this is the love of books. I’m called a bookworm because I enjoy reading more than anything else in this world. I’m not kidding. I really love books.
Secondly, you should know that English is not my mother tongue. I suppose you have already noticed that I have an accent, and unfortunately, it’s not a British one. It’s Russian. That’s right. I’m Russian and live in Russia so far.
And thirdly. Actually that’s it. I can not think of the third point. I’m sorry! I hope that this is enough. If it’s not, let me know what else you would like to know about me by leaving your comments on my web site, which is krisland.ru.
Now, I’d like to explain you why I took it upon myself to make a podcast about books in English. Well, as you might remember (it was not so long ago, by the way!) I am an avid reader. I read on average three books a week depending on the number of pages in a book. And I said to myself, sharing my opinion about books with people is going to be quite a good idea. Plus, it’s going to be very useful for improving my English as well. I kill two birds with one stone! Isn’t it great? It certainly is! I hope you like my podcast and gradually used to my accent! I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
I’ll be very grateful for any feedback from you (whether it’s positive or negative – it doesn’t matter). What matters most to me is your thoughts! Please leave your comments on my site, which is krisland.ru. Of course, if you want to! There is no obligation!
And I’d like to conclude this introduction with my other favorite Bette Davis’ line from “Cabin in the cotton”: “I’d like to kiss you, but I just washed my hair. Bye.”
