About meI've been an enthusiastic reader for as far back as I can remember, which is a couple of decades now; and though I'm not reading as much as I used to, the enthusiasm remains undiminished. Although German is my native language, I also read books in English and French, even the occasional Japanese one back when I had not yet forgotten what little I used to know of the language.

Starting October 2011, I have been keeping a book diary,and am trying to post at least a brief review of every book I finished reading - mostly for myself, I'll admit, but maybe someone will find something helpful among them.

About my libraryI'm adding books pretty much randomly, so it will take a while until the stuff listed here will be close to representative of my collection (which is way more eclectic than it looks like on here at the moment).

Thanks for the accept
A fine review of The Dispossessed, reminding me that it's high time I revisited it, along with her other Ekumen novels (not all of which I've read yet). Such a positive critique too, against all those that say it's not this or that or is lacking something it didn't set out to do. Looking forward to reading your other reviews now.
Thanks! I'll try to fix, hope there's an edit button! :/
I enjoyed your review of Through the Valley of the Nest of Spiders, which I just finished today. I found the last couple hundred pages almost unbearably moving.

Thanks for posting it.
Thank you,OrionZangara and suncoursing - nice to know someone finds this interesting and even useful. :)
Awesome library! Your library has been a lot more useful than LibraryThing's recommender for genres I don't normally read :)
I just wanted to say that I love your library. Very cool!
Thanks for the support?
