About my libraryAs long as my books are not totally eaten by the Ctenolepisma Longicaudatum (Silverfish), the number is still growing, may it be not as fast as it used to. During my study I was a frequent visitor of the Amsterdam fleamarket, the Waterlooplein, and my first job was in a building beside the fleamarket (now replaced by the Stopera), so I got hundreds of books and gramophone records from there. The gramophone records are now outdated, I gave them to a collector and replaced them by CDs, which I understand are now becoming outdated too. I still hope I will not live long enough to see books becoming outdated and be replaced by electronic ones.
