About meRead by Marieke in:
2013: (post 7)

About my libraryOctober 2007: I (Marieke) begin cataloguing our library. We both love reading immensely, but my better half prefers to be a "stand-alone reader" and will not participate actively in this venture. All the books are on our shelves.

November 2007: Start of some new tags for those books we borrowed from libraries and want to recall. So no longer all catalogued books are on our shelves only. The new tags are dob, kb, ppl, (kb = royal library, dob = public library, ppl = peace palace library)

Spring 2008: We decide to add our dvd's. New tags dvd movie, dvd docu etc.

September 2010: the e-reader arrives in our lives. Start of tag e-book. A growing number of our books are on the hard disk now, and since December 2012 some are "in the cloud"...
