About meAmerican/Swede relatively recently relocated back to Göteborg, Sweden from Scotland. I read in waves, and sometimes have a couple things going at once.
About my libraryA mix of classics, cyberpunk, alternate history (esp. WWII), slightly offbeat or dark humor, graphic novels, modern lit, some utter fluff and more - in a few different languages. Tags & such are uneven and sketchy. My catalogue mainly includes books I own and have read, but also library books I've read since joining LT. Due to having moved a lot, read library books, or shared books around the family, etc. there is a lot missing.
