About meI'm 40-something and a lawyer by profession. In my spare time I try to read a lot and write a little. I also like to take photographs, go for a long walk and work out in the local crossfit gym :)

About my libraryMy library is based on horror novels, hardboiled/noir mysteries and spy fiction. This kind of literature tends to give me a high return on the reading pleasure scale. I also enjoy a good apocalyptic novel or short story on a regular basis. I'd like to read more fantasy, SF and historical fiction in the future...

When I buy books for my library I always look for small sized paperback editions. They are cheaper, lighter and can actually be carried around in a pocket. Also, life is short. I will put a book away if it has not caught my complete attention after 50 pages...

My reading goal for 2010 was to read 25 books. These are the books I managed to read. Best book in 2010 was: One Day by David Nicholls.

My reading goal for 2011 is to read 36 books, mostly fiction. These are the books I've read so far. Well, guess I'm not going to make it this year. UPDATE: No, didn't make it.

This is my reading list for 2012. Best book was Under The Dome by Stephen King.

This is my reading list for 2013.
