About meI was trained in philosophy and held a professorship in gender studies. Knitting, yarndyeing and photography have been my hobbies that I now, after recent retirement can spend mor time with.

About my libraryWhen I retired I donated a large part of my feminist library to the library at Gender studies. I have listed some of those and other interesting books in that library as a reference list for writing after retirement.
And since we moved in 2008 from a house to a flat we reduced our philosophy library with 75%. We saved books mostly on/by Simone Weil, Hannah Arendt, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Aristotle and some other classic philosophers.
In the living room, which is rather big, we have bookshelves on all walls up to the ceiling - with mostly fiction,few of them listed here this far (July 2010).

Two other rooms have shelves with philosophy, history and other non-fiction books. My study and craft room have craft literature, mostly knitting and other textile books.
I just (July 2010) started to swap books I do not want to own at tradera.com (garnlek) or bokborsen.se (textil&filosofi) Instead I add to the wishlist craft books I want to check out before purchase.
