About me--------------------------------------------------​--------------------------------------------------​
You can really call me a book addict. I just love reading novels, short stories or plays - and love discussing them. I try to read the texts in the original language, and at the moment this is possible in German (mother tongue), English and French.

In general, it's difficult to choose a favorite writer... I love variety. :) "La peste" by Albert Camus is one of the books which I can read every year. I also like the books by Ian McEwan, John Irving, Philip Roth, Paul Auster, Guy de Maupassant, Thomas Glavinic, Jakob Arjouni, George Orwell, AND MANY MANY MORE!

About my libraryMarch 15th, 2012: Because I start doubting about which books I already own, I will start to add all my books one after the other. Some of them I have already read, others not.

Only the books I have read during the last two year and which I am finishing from now on do get a rating. Otherwise I haven't yet read the book, or too much time has passed since reading it and my evaluation wouldn't be very reliable.
