About meLYS CE QUE VOUDRA (Rabelais)
- I grew up as a reader. It will never end
- Books are my joy, my pride, my comfort
- I am a passionate re-reader: "Any book, which is at all important, should be reread immediately" (Schopenhauer)
- "In order to read what is good one must make it a condition never to read what is bad; for life is short..." (Shopenhauer again)
- I don't like the term "coffeetable book"
- I like lists

About my libraryBooks are part of my personal history. I list and rate only books which actually belong to me (except the wishlist). My reading taste is wide spread:
- Non-Fiction: natural and social science, climate change, philosophy, politics etc.
- I am an avid collector of books about books
- But I am really passionate about Interior Design
- Everlasting love: Early to mid 20th century England – Waugh, Maugham, Tolkien, Wodehouse and Sayers ed.al
- Bedtime reading: Science fiction, Tolkien's fantasy, espionage and detective stories
- I adore Alexander von Humboldt
