About my libraryBooks I read before I went to university (early 1980s).
Books I bought while studying, sometimes picking up cheaper German editions because there was no *ama...* then and I couldn't afford the originals.
Books which remind me of those times when I read really weird books and actually had to write a paper about them.
History books - not enough time to read them properly, their contents are used to torture my students nowadays...
Books I bought for fun (beware of some trash).
Books I sometimes/rarely/would like to need for work and those about topics I'm very much interested in, the intersection of Science Fiction, technology, culture and history.
Cataloguing my books seems daunting, but fun!
