About meWear the old coat and buy the new book. (Austin Phelps)
Miss Watson is the name of Katharine Hepburn's character in "The Desk Set" – a reference librarian. That's my day job, and these are the main interests in my life: books and movies. Preferably fictional and in the original language

About my libraryMy library contains a lot of English language fiction because when I started collecting books they were non-existent in German public libraries. (Things have changed a lot in the libraries of larger cities.) I'm also slowly adding the books I once owned and had to part with.
My ratings tend to be high because most are books I own(ed). I buy them with the expectation of re-reading them. Life is too short to waste time on bad books.
