About meLT user 456509

Were I a brand, in another guise.

About my libraryReading log beginning May 07, reviews for each title beginning late 2008. Includes wishlist and near-complete catalogue of my library.

Majority of titles listed as of October 2011. Of these:
Works of non-fiction (NOF): predominantly related to myth, social theory, and philosophy; keep regardless of how persuasive I find them.
Verse, essays, and graphical arts (grafik) : identified by tags.
Works of fiction (FIC): keep if unread, in German (auf deutsch) or worth revisiting; elsewise donate.
