About meI like to read novels of the “literary fiction” type. I dislike “genre fiction”. But I’m perhaps the slowest reader in the world.

I collect One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez and a few other books in as many languages as I can find.

I’ve recently returned from travelling around East Asia, Eastern Europe, Turkey and the Caucasus, where I’ve picked up copies of One Hundred Years of Solitude translated into the local languages as well as some little dictionaries and language books.

I also do a lot of work on the English Wiktionary.

About my libraryI’m trying to enter the exact editions I own. I use the tag “checked edition” when I have the book with me and can use the ISBN or other details, “unchecked edition” when I use another user’s library, Amazon, etc but the edition looks like mine, and “wrong edition” when I’m pretty sure it’s different to mine.
