About meLess is more, useless more still. This is entertaining and utterly addictive.

I am educated in Scandinavian Studies/languages, Political Science, and Literature. I read just about anything, but am least fond of sci fi.

I enjoy taking pictures and post some of them on ipernity (link below). I did use - but because of their double standards/censorship, I decided to leave. Double and triple standards upset me.

About my libraryMy library grows - my apartment does not. As I do not plan to move house and double shelving is not an option - I say farewell to a few books once or twice a year. Some I give to charity, some to friends or family and some books I simply throw away.

It is, after all, not the number of books on the shelves that create the library I love. Most of the books that are there now are the ones I really want to keep. There are titles I know I will be getting rid of, but for now, this is my library.

I have added a new tag "gone" for books that have been mine but are now on bookshelves somewhere else. Books by Leon Uris, Harold Robbins and Erle Stanley Gardner - read them in my early teens - they have a new home now, and several others. In the basement there is a box or two with books from my childhood.
