About My Library
A mix of classics, cyberpunk, alternate history (esp. WWII), slightly offbeat or dark humor, graphic novels, modern lit, some utter fluff and more - in a few different languages. Tags & such are uneven and sketchy. My catalogue mainly includes books I own and have read, but also library books I've read since joining LT. Due to having moved a lot, read library books, or shared books around the family, etc. there is a lot missing.

That said, I periodically add books to LT I know I've read (collection: Books read once upon a time). Those will not be the actual publication I've read. It's a bit warts-and-all - i.e., there are books there I would not pick up today, or at least would resist until someone put a copy in my hands for free and I had nothing else to read at the time... But I read 'em, so they're here.

The books in my library are more likely to be rated and better represent (more or less) where my head is at these days.

For an idea of what I've read or am reading:
