About meI've been an enthusiastic reader for as far back as I can remember, which is a couple of decades now; and though I'm not reading as much as I used to, the enthusiasm remains undiminished. Although German is my native language, I also read books in English and French, even the occasional Japanese one back when I had not yet forgotten what little I used to know of the language.

Starting October 2011, I have been keeping a book diary,and am trying to post at least a brief review of every book I finished reading - mostly for myself, I'll admit, but maybe someone will find something helpful among them.

About my libraryI'm adding books pretty much randomly, so it will take a while until the stuff listed here will be close to representative of my collection (which is way more eclectic than it looks like on here at the moment).
