About me30-ish librarian, bureaucrat roleplayer and nerd. Residing in Uppsala, Sweden.

Kind of a bastard, but only occasionally in a bad way.

Also kind of pretentious.

Undisputed lord and master of the broken English rambling review.


About my libraryAn odd mix, but then again, I guess most personal libraries are. Some adolescent fantasy from my teenage days, some not-quite-so-adolescent fantasy, classics and textbooks from my lit-sci-days, books on folklore, myth and religion because I'm a nerd, books about LIS and libraries because, well, I'm a librarian. There's also a fair bunch of my S.O:s books in here - because leaving books in the apartment uncatalogued would be madness...

I like weird, magical, strange and unsettling books that leaves you wondering and scratching your head. I like big dictionary-style reference books on weird subjects. I like nice editions of classics, and I like much-read and beloved dog-eared paperbacks. I like out of print children's books that take forever to track down. I like comics. I like collected works of poetry. I like annotated editions, and I like different translations of classics so that I can compare and contrast.
