About meI use LT to list the books I've read or am currently reading. I prefer classics and literature and have found the Everyman Library and NYRB series very useful in trying things which I wouldn't ordinary have tried or even known about.

Hi Ian

I am very sorry to have missed this comment until today. I don't know what happened, but when checking through my inbox I found it and saw that I hadn't replied.

Thanks very much for your remarks on my blog - its a labour of love but I'm finding it a bit difficult to get the time to keep it up to date at the moment. How amazing that your mother used to live in Seaford

You are quite right I haven't read Joseph Roth and I will now go and look at Amazon listings and choose one to read. I see you are one of the veyr few people who has read Gregor Von Rezzori - I think he is a wonderful writer and I have created several pages on his books on my blog. The New York Review of Books are republishing his book Ermine of Czernopol next spring and this one will be worth waiting for I think.

I also note that you have read Proust - I have only read the first two volumes and it will take me some years to get through the others I think

all the best, Tom

Hello Ian!!

Welcome to Librarything. Isn't it great ? I just finished reading The Royal Game this morning. I agree - it is better I think than the first story. I am captivated by Zweig now and his ability to capture the inner workings of the human mind. I find it extraordinary!! Thank you for adding me to your interesting library's list. That is a great honour. A one-year old delightful ....if somewhat disturbing to one's sleeping patterns!! I'll keep an eye out for The Post Office Girl.
