Thanks--a couple of your recently added books showing up on my home page have gone straight to my wish list. I'm looking forward to going through your library. (And the book labels.)
very good taste !! ...please add me in facebook.
Hi Greg - I'd be interested in your views on WG Sebald. I see you have a minor horde of his books amongst your 'recent activity'.

I haven't come across Emergence of Memory before, so would be particlularly interested on your impressions of this book...

In July, I moved from Nagoya, Japan to Rangoon with two suitcases, ten books, and two cats. That means I shipped sth. like 1000 books to Chicago. My ever-thoughtful son gave me a Kindle for Christmas (and I can download books he's purchased here in Burma). Not quite the same but it's what I'm settling for. With regard to books, the advantage of living in China and now Burma is access to locally published books in English you would never be able to find any other way.

BTW, looking through your Japan books (and pardon me if I overlooked that you HAD these), I'd recommend Alan Booth's Looking for the Lost and any of Oliver Statler's books.

Working in a bookstore could either be a nightmare or a dream come true, surely. My particular version of that is never ever getting books back by the due date, having worked either in libraries or schools my whole life!

In the books we share, you have so many that are my favorites. Right now, also I see Agaat which is on my current wishlist! Let me know about favorite books you've been reading?
You've been busy entering your library! A bit addictive, isn't it?
