About meLipstick librarian, femme about town and library-card-carrying lifelong bookworm.

About my libraryEclectic collection of whatever has taken my fancy over the last 30 years or so, plus a record of various library borrowings, so I can keep track of what I've read, as I am apt to forget unless I do...

Slowly adding titles from my home library as the occasion allows, but many many more still to go as yet. My incredibly, if rather predictable librarian-like ambition is to catalogue all my books on LibraryThing with accurate bibliographic information and accompanying representation of the actual cover, but this is proving to be a rather time-consuming endeavour, though nonetheless enjoyable for all that. A busman's holiday indeed.

I see you have added 'Hans' by Michel Boutron to your library. This must be the same book that I read for my French A level in 1981 but which I think is now out of print. Do you have a copy yourself - I am envious if so! I have recently re-read most of the others I studied - Le Grand Meaulnes (hated it at the time, loved it this time round), Candide, La Peste and Balzac short stories. What else did you study?

Just to say, "FemmeSavante" is one cool nickname. :-)

That's it!
A leaf, a sun-beam, a landscape, the ocean, make an analogous impression on the mind. What is common to them all, --that perfectness and harmony, is beauty. The standard of beauty is the entire circuit of natural forms,-- the totality of nature... - Ralph Waldo Emerson
