About meAnglo-Swiss grandmother, partly retired travel editor, independent translator, editor, proof-reader, photographer and one day, hopefully, publisher.

About my libraryI began buying books from the Folio Society in 1976 and they are all listed here, apart from those I gave away. Most of the hardbacks in my library, both at home and in my office, are listed; they mainly cover travel, food, art, illustration, some children's books, and some old stuff I retrieved from my mother's collection (like What Katy Did). Still working my way through the paperbacks.

Some of these are upside-down: I keep finding more.
I've added a cover for if you are interested.

Great angle!
Thanks for finding me and friending me!
Hola Barbara, thank you very much for taking the time to post some photos of the book on the Witches of Salem, is just amazing.

Hey Barbara,

I got your book (Bernard Shaw) but managed to somehow delete your mailing info.

Please resend and I'll get it off to you right away.

Take care,

No problem Overthemoon, just send me your info via email and I'll take care of this for you next week.
:-) Fellow geeks happily wasting time away on the same websites :) It's great, though, that way I learned you're working as a travel editor. Must be a fun job.
Traduction du Harraps Unabridged anglais-français pour name dropping : Allusions fréquentes à des personnes connues dans le but d'impressionner. C'est bien ce que je pensais : pas vraiment d'équivalent en français. Peut-être parce que c'est une spécialité anglo-saxonne ? ;-)
Merci pour les commentaires... Du coup, j'ai changé d'avis et je me suis complété ma collection de Dickens (Hard Times). Plus The Wooden World, Bede et Xénophon. Folio a récemment mis le Shorter Oxford English Dict. en 2 volumes comme cadeau de renouvellement + Colours. C'est ce que j'ai choisi, bien que j'ai déjà trop de dictionnaires.
Je sais que tu apprécies beaucoup Adrian Mole et je regrette que mon anglais ne me permette pas d'en faire autant. J'essaierai peut-être un jour.
Je crois que name-dropping fait partie des nombreux mots anglais qui n'ont pas de traduction en français. Quelquefois, mon nouveau Harraps a des trouvailles géniales. Je jetterai un oeil dessus ce soir.
Non, merci pour la proposition. Je me demandais simplement si ça valait le coup de le prendre comme l'un de mes 4 livres de renouvellement chez Folio. (J'ai aussi en vue le Xénophon, dans les nouveautés...) Tu ne m'as pas dit si tu avais bien aimé ce livre. Je dois dire que c'est surtout la photo de (comment s'appelle-t-il : Nirven?) en Cupidon avec un arc sur le prospectus qui m'attire vers The Moon's a Balloon. C'est une photo géniale.
Ooops, je ne le vois pas chez toi. Je croyais t'avoir entendu en parler dans un thread. Désolé pour l'erreur.
Il me semble que tu as The Moon's a Balloon. Est-ce que c'est amusant à lire ? Très British ? Je m'apprête à reprendre une souscription à la Folio et j'hésite pour mon 4e livre... (les 3 autres : Boethius, Bede et The Diary of a Nobody pour ne pas me suicider après avoir lu les 2 autres)
Le petit Bennett a enfin trouvé une enveloppe à bulles. Il partira demain matin.

Yes, I list quite a few of my childhood books--I imagined the catalogue as representing my "total" library--although those books now have more of an "archaeological" than current interest. And nothing matches their sentimental value...
Désolé de te faire geler. Ici, je bous d'impatience... ;-)
(Je ne suis pas sûr que "je bous" s'écrive comme ça...)
It is indeed the white and gold. I'll try to post photos.
I should have mentioned that the book in question is [The New York Stories]
waving back and so nice to see you here
