About meI am a 26 years old German student of English and German Linguistics as well as Literature, and additionally of History (from about the Middle Ages up till now) at Cologne's University.
Generally I am pretty enthusiastic about the Middle Ages, that includes re-enactment as well.
Though I love books, I severely suffer from being forced to buy merely random books - from my point of view and taste - for my studies. As mentioned before, I am a student, so there is always this money issue... I am sure you've heard about it.

About my librarymainly soft sci-fi, fantasy and historical fiction and a lot of history related textbooks; I'll try to give reviews of my more recent lectures. Whenever I give a review, I do so in the language in which I have read the book in question - in the unlikely event anyone may be interested in my humble opinion about a book I've already reviewed but s/he'd prefer the review's text alternately either in German or English, s/he has just to ask, I don't mind (o;
All reviews of books I've read, but do not owe I will post here

Uh, I am so lazy, review-wise! Though I've read a few books this past year, I just hadn't the leisure to write the corresponding reviews. Well, I didn't even start my 50 Books Challenge this year! And As short as my memory is, I don't even remember which books I read this year, or what's even from the past year. Somehow I regret that... Well, at least I found my way back to my books and keep reading currently. Mainly, because I have to due to an intermediate examination in December. Additionally, I participate in a seminar called something like: publisher's work in practice, the editorial office. The tutor keeps pointing out, that reading is mandatory in order to gain insight into the literary, cultural, political ... whatever stuff and thus have a brought knowledge with which a editor may read and work a manuscript.

Well, I have to read and work another 4000+ pages until the beginning of December.
Thanks for telling me about your review of Sampson's book. I only have read your 50 book challenge. I was looking under the Talk Tab for "Your Books" several months ago and we seemed to share an interesting set of books. I don't usually go to this tab, because it takes too long for my library to be compared with everyone else's library, given that I have 4700 bokks in LT.
