Über meine BibliothekLife would be simpler if I had some alphabetical camels.

"In the tenth century...the Grand Vizier of Persia, Abdul Kassem Ismael, in order not to part with his collection of 117,000 volumes when travelling, had them carried by a caravan of four hundred camels trained to walk in alphabetical order."

--Alberto Manguel, A History of Reading

------

Mmmm. Books. Tasty! Lots of fiction, lots of travel, lots of history, odd caches of fascinations (the middle east, polar exploration, fairy tales, Victorian sensationalist novels) and a few smatterings of strangeness.

There's a rough average of 150 books a year added to the shelves, and they all get read. I reread frequently, and hoover up text in libraries too. More books now, please. Recommendations *always* welcome.

(There were just another five or six hundred books still to catalogue but then we moved house, and now they are scattered into chaos. Ack! And then moved again. And acquired lots more books.

Now I'm trying to work out which books were bought and read in the past six months as well as those I never catalogued the first time around...except fits and starts as I discover odd caches.)

What was I reading in early 2008? these books, with comments, rather than weighty reviews. As of 10 April: 61, ranging from the bloody awful to the absolutely sublime.
