About meGerman twenty-something student of history and theology. I was told in primary-school I was only good for reading and nothing else and here I am. ;)

About my libraryI used to be mainly interested in literature written before the 1960s-70s, non-fiction dealing with history, archeology as well as biographies.

I still love books from these areas but nowadays I'll read anything that sounds interesting to me so it's easier to say what I don't tend to read: Romance, Crime, SF and YA. (Again, there are always exceptions to the rule, especially with books written before the second half of the 20th century.)

I also love second-hand and antiquarian bookstores since they make it so easy to find great books you never even expected to exist. :)

Since I never seem to have the time for an own reading Challenge thread, I'll post the map of the places I've visited in books in 2016 here:
