About me'In everything, I want to reach
To the very essence.
In work, in searching for the path,
In troubles of the heart.

To the essence of days gone by,
To their causes,
To foundations, to roots,
To the core...'

I've now posted my notes about buying Russian books at, and about buying books on the classics--and also bibles--at

About my libraryI'm presently engaged in disposing of books, so a certain amount of disorder will be observed.
