About meMiddle-aged translator, lifelong fascination with anything English and British. My education is really about history and archaeology, I have an MA in Finnish history.

However, languages, especially English, have always been my love no. 2. So that explains the amount of English books in my library. Languages are the salt of my life, reading books is extasy.

About my libraryA diverse collection of everything I find interesting. Some books are moving off the library to new pastures due to family matters.
