About me„Books! ‚tis a dull and endless strive:
Come, hear the woodland linnet,
How sweet his music! on my life,
There’s more of wisdom in it.“

William Wordsworth

About my libraryThe list represents by no means my complete library. I am only listing books which have occupied my attention since I joined or have significantly stuck in my head for some reason. The term 'childrens' has not found its way into my collection of tags; I believe that almost any novel or story could be digested by an intelligent child of 12 years and have therefore omitted the category.
