About meI'm a husband, parent, board gamer, blogger, BookMoocher, book lover and an overall nice guy. I've got a M.Soc.Sc. in Information Studies, which makes me a potential librarian.

I'm also an author, as my shiny LT Author badge proves. So far I've written a book on new board games and another on card games. Both are in Finnish, with a rather small print runs, so no wonder I'm the only one to own them on LibraryThing (it's still a bit sad).

About my libraryI usually read books just once, so most of the books I read come from BookMooch, hang around until I read them and then are posted to BookMooch again. I prefer to keep my bookshelf as small as possible. Thus, I only own the books marked "owned". While I love books and reading, owning thousands or even hundreds of books would be almost a nightmare to me.
