About meI'm a (chemical) engineer currently living in Shanghai, previously in Frankfurt, but originally from Ireland. I'm interested in history, particularly medieval history, and have started trying to learn more about Chinese history.

About my libraryI appear to have begun recording reading dates and writing reviews of books, as I read or re-read them. (All dates mentioned are for the latest read, which is not automatically the first time.)

My catalog here is still in a bit of a mess, but I'm trying to slowly fix it, one book at a time.

Most of my paper books are a couple of thousand miles away, so I can only really access the ebooks.

Books in the "To read" collection are in some state of not read - I may be part way through, half-abandoned them several years ago or not started at all!
