About meI'm currently reading my way around the world (aiming to "visit" each of the 192 member states of the UN), and I'm recording what I read on my journey in my thread in the Reading Globally group. I decided not to count things I'd already read, but rather to start from scratch; my aim is not to tick countries off as quickly as possible, but to discover new authors and learn about their cultures through their books.
About my library(not about my library at all, but rather things that have been recommended to me recently, so I don't forget).
