Über michI was addicted to books ever since I started reading. I am an avid reader, but as I am usually reading several books in parallel, finishing one might take a while.

Although I always read a lot, I wasted many years on reading "trash books". I assume the reason was the terrible selection of 'serious literature' I had to go through at school. There was never any enjoyment in the way books were treated then. I started reading English books at an early age, because in a foreign language the trash seems less trashy.

But there was a point some years ago when my job became so dull yet stressful that I felt the urgent need to fill my head with some beautiful language as a counterbalance to all those endless (and lifeless) IT papers I had to read.

I finally discovered Shakespeare, first in German, but quickly I switched to the original versions and got used to the language and style by learning a part of the sonnets by heart. And then I found this website with all those suggestions and I haven't been able to stop reading (and collecting) since then. Thank you so much for enriching my life!

Über meine BibliothekI will not try to list all my books here. There are just too many, most of them put into storage when I moved to Italy.

I will list all new purchases, the main part of my English books and some older books which mean something to me.

In 2009 I moved to the North of Italy (German speaking region South Tyrole) which makes it harder to find English books (my old town had a huge English book shop... my personal paradise!). So I will catch up on the German authors and hopefully, gradually, also Italian books will find their way into my library.

Since even my new shelves are overflowing after less than one year in my new place, I now decided to start using an e-reader and I ordered a Kindle from the US.

Something about my rating system:

* or **: those books might also turn up in the 'Waste of my Time' collection. They disappointed me, often made me angry and I don't want to touch them ever again.
***: this could be an 'above average trash' book, but also a well written book by a renowned author that left me with a feeling of complete indifference
****: I really enjoyed reading this book and might re-read it
*****: I 'lived' this book while reading it, I was dragged into the story and could not put it down. Definitely worth a re-read. And this could be anything from Shakespeare to the early Harry Potters.
