About meI'm a history and literature buff, so most of my reading is in that direction. I mostly read (older) classics, though I also like some modern novelists. To me books reflect (an aspect of) society: this is very obvious in one of my all-time favourites, War and Peace, but also in the wonderful Discworld series by Terry Pratchett (a true heir to Jonathan Swift).
About my libraryMy library is too large for my appartment and is spread out over various rooms. Books are sometimes put in double lines on the shelves. Boxes and piles are everywhere. I really need to move to a bigger place with a proper library room. Or maybe to a library with living quarters.
