I've spent most of my life in Hungary (Győr and Budapest), but I also lived in Austria (Wien) and Norway (Tromsø).

About my libraryI'm doing the 999 Challenge! Check out my thread :]


My catalog is sorely incomplete - mostly because my books are physically spread out to various locations. I've started with adding my SF and manga collections; most other stuff is missing for the time being, and even those are not finished yet (SF from the Eastern bloc in particular is mostly missing). I do try to update the database with my recent reads, though, so the tag mirror probably represents my interests fairly well, it's only the proportions that are off.


I've decided to move the descriptions of my cataloging misadventures... er... updates to my LJ (which is rather sparse to outsiders anyway, as most of my posts are friendslocked). So if you want to check out what's going on with my library right now, go here.


The ratings I give to books tend to be high because I can get super-enthusiastic about everything I do. Then I take off a few stars a few months later as the initial bounciness wears off ;] So ASK me before you use them as recommendations! For your own sake :P
