About me70, retired, ex-librarian, historian, gardener, Mac-user

About my libraryMystery, crime, history, architecture, topography, cookery, gardening, Danish, German, English, French, literature, literary history, languages. My wife and I have contributed to the growth of our library in about equal amounts. I am at the moment slowly working my way through our house and have started on the fourth room in our Copenhagen house.
I only include books we own. We havent necessarily read them all, some we just like having around for browsing, some are textbooks or reference. About half are in Danish, the rest mostly in English, German, Norwegian and French.
Special interests: History of Slesvig (small entity sandwiched between Denmark and Germany), Gardening, Japanese Studies, Mystery and Suspense, Classics.
Tags/Emneord: numbers as tags in our library means Danish Decimal Classification-numbers (DK5, roughly equivalent to Dewey but only with two figures running from 00.01 to 99.9). Explanation and overview:
I have some kind of a system in my head (but in my head only):
- philosophy, religion, natural sciences
- encyclopedias, biographical dictionaries &c.
- history
- topography/travels/archeology/art/architecture(by country)
- cooking
- gardening
- general fiction
- poetry
- drama
- crime/suspense/phantasy
- childrens books
- collected works
- classics (:greek and latin)
- japanese studies, books in japanese
- language studies (european languages mostly)
- special collections (family books, old German books &c)
