About meAfter having graduated in Applied Physics, and worked as a researcher in neurophysiology, building computer models of neural networks, I spent the rest of my working life in the the IT industry. Being retired, I now have time for my hobbies: books, languages and grandchildren. First, I took up French where I had left it at school, and continued it at the Univ. of Stockholm with a Master thesis, doing a "computational linguistics" study of the old french used by Villehardouin and Robert de Clari (see authors in LT) in their chroniques of the conquest of Constantinople in 1204.
About my libraryThe largest part of my book collection is probably still french litterature, grammar, history, old french and latin. But the science part is gradually increasing. And recently, it's a lot of books about atheism, religion and history.
