About meI don't remember a time when books weren't an important part of my life. My earliest memories are of my father reading to me, mostly from Beatrix Potter, and from Enid Blyton's Big-Ears and Noddy books. When we took walks together, which was often, he taught me to recite poetry by heart, and William Blake's Songs of Innocence is where he started.
About my libraryMy library is mostly fiction. There are a lot of classics, a healthy collection of whodunnits, a growing pile of Swedish crime fiction, interspersed with science fiction, fantasy, best-sellers, and young adult literature. Religious studies was my minor in university, and I have a lot of books on that subject, as well as works on wildlife, biographies and memoirs, travel writing, and tomes about hominid anthropology, mostly out-of-date now.
