About meI love visiting libraries and bookshops. It's like going on a treasure hunt. I never know exactly what I'm going to find.

"Do you find it easy to get drunk on words?"
"So easy that, to tell you the truth, I'm seldom perfectly sober. Which accounts for my talking so much."

-- Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey, from Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers

About my libraryHere are the books I've read.

(My CDs and DVDs are catalogued separately: HerenyaMedia.)

My comments and reviews are generally spoiler-free. Ratings are very subjective and occasionally arbitrary -- based on quality, how much I liked the book, how it compared with other books or a combination of the above. As a rule, usually 3 stars = good book.

My Wishlist collection contains books I've read and particularly want to own. Connect contains books I want included in connections and recommendations.

Books are tagged with the year I read them.

"Publication" information is accurate for all books I own and also those read since ~2009.
"Publication date" intentionally lists each book's original publication date. The edition's publication date is included under "Publication".

Please feel free to leave me comments.
