About meAs of Feb 2013 I have returned (temp) to South Australia.

I read in a rather serendipitous fashion, preferring non-fiction over fiction.

"Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere." Jean Rhys

"Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence."
Erich Fromm - The Art of Loving.

"Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it."
André Gide.

About my library"When I get a little money, I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes." - Erasmus

Reminiscences of Henry Crabb Robinson, Jan. 10, 1824:
"I looked over (Charles) Lamb's library in part. He has the finest collection of shabby books I ever saw; such a number of first-rate works in very bad condition is, I think, nowhere to be found."

"Intellectual Freedom is the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored. Intellectual freedom encompasses the freedom to hold, receive and disseminate ideas." - Intellectual Freedom and Censorship Q & A

(I no naka no kawazu taikai wo shirazu)

Literally: A frog in a well does not know the great sea.
Meaning: People are satisfied to judge things by their own narrow experience, never knowing of the wide world outside.

Don't I wish in Arnhem land! Monument has moved all its toys into the bottom floor and all the books upstairs. I think it just happened because it's really pretty much a mess at the moment. Very cluttered and, well, unaesthetic. Money problems, I hear.... The first time I walked just after it opened, I thought: "I stocked this bookstore"! Cheers. Amalie

This is the street corner in Yangon where the Mahatma Gandhi Hall is located. See second corner street sign 'Merchant Street'.
hi; if you still pass through SA I can recommend Imprints bookshop in Hindley St. Adelaide.
I'm glad you enjoyed my library--thanks for listing it.

I'm also most definitely a Book Scout!

All the best,
Thanks for adding me to your list of interesting libraries!
Thanks for the offer, I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks for thinking my library is interesting

I am honoured that you have included my library in your list of interesting libraries.

I am honoured that you have included my library in your list of interesting libraries.
I'm pleased to enter your extensive list of interesting libraries, Craig. And I'd suggest (not without self-interest) that you begin a LT Authors category in your "Member connections" by purchasing and entering my book, I Think, Therefore Who Am I? (Memoir of a Psychedelic Year), available via (you can read reviews there, and on, and on LT itself) or though AbeBooks. As an Internet-only writer, who has essentially published himself, I'm still struggling to find willing readers.


I recently joined the All Books Africa Group. As a publisher who has just released a novel about the Angolan Civil War, I thought it might be worth bringing to your attention. Ondjaki's Good morning Comrades has just been released (indeed, i'm not sure amazon has changed it status yet). Ondjaki is a Lusophone writer of international reputation, and our edition of Good morning Comrades introduces him to an English speaking audience for the first time. It will not be the last: Aflame Books in the UK is set to release his fable The Whistler, and I know New Directions is also looking at publishing something by him soon. We expect he will become one of the most celebrated African novelists of his generation.

Anyway, if you would like further information on Comrades, you can chcekc out our website at It is also available online on amazon and elsewhere, and available through any good bookstore.

Thansk for your time, and I do hope that this was not too intrusive. (We're a small literary press based in Canada, and we're just trying to do whatever we can to let potential readers know about the book.

Best wishes,

Dan Wells
