About meIndependent energy policy specialist working in Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

About my libraryOne Christmas recently I bought books I already had and both my daughters bought me the same book. Something had to change. Now I have catalogued all my books and my kids' books as well

Now I have my list on my phone ready to be consulted at an airport, when I am most at risk to buy a duplicate book.

But now I am wondering which books, if any, I should read on my iPad.

My books reflect where I have been working for the last 15 years: Eastern Europe. I have travel writing and history, language handbooks, often not used much. I also have novels for reading during the travels and travel guides for where I might have gone as well as where I have been.

I love the CueCat scanner.
