About meBooks are my weakness! They are the only things I keep on buying, even if most of them end up at the shelves after reading and stay closed for the rest of their lives. I like to read "world literature, it is my aim to read a book from every country in the world.

About my libraryThis catalogue took me awhile. It's been quite an experience to take all these beloved books from their shelves, browse through them and remember the stories, to find strange relics from the past between the pages, bus tickets from times and places I passed through, little notes from people I used to know. Makes me think of the places where I read these books, and the ways these books affected me.

The big problem is, handling these books makes me want to reread them! How am I going to do this, considering the long list of books at my wish list, and all that is not yet published, but will be....? Panic!

My library consists of fiction mainly, a small collection of art books, and coursebooks from all the courses I started and sometimes even finished. I own all these books, but have not read them all yet.
