About meAurélien Arkadiusz’ claims, I r e a d, therefore I am.

About my libraryHaere mai. Welcome to my small library.

Mostly I read History, Mysteries, and Science Fiction.

If you like books from or about the 19th Century, and/or the early 20th Century, you might enjoy browsing my library shelves and meeting up with old friends.

Visitors will need *sigh*, to make allowances for the sad reality that older books often have damaged dustjackets, or no dustjacket at all.

# Some of these books date back to my childhood days, all those long years ago, way back in the middle of last century.
# Two books even come from my parents' 1920s childhood collections.
# The rest have been added over the decades, many bought second-hand.
# All have (somehow) survived occasional fairly ruthless weeding bouts, triggered both by space constraints and by my family's unshakeable and loudly expressed conviction that "Normal people live surrounded by people, and not by decaying piles of woodpulp".

'Guidebook' is used in the widest possible sense.
'Mystery' includes Detective tales.
'Children's Book' includes some books written for teenagers.
'UK' & 'USA' have both been used before either of those political entities came into being.
'Americana' & 'Picture Book' have been overused.
