Sobre la meva biblioteca
On here I have mostly those books I have with me in NYC. Even after several years of living in America, most of my books remain in England and beyond the reach of my internet connection, although I have recently started to collect a few details on each trip and add them here. Recent interests are therefore well represented (notably history and historical fiction); earlier ones less so (mathematics, detective stories, late 19th - early 20th century literature, for example).

Nonetheless, there is a sort of slow osmosis going on between the two libraries, in which books I have read migrate to England and those that need reading, or which I no longer feel I can do without, travel in the opposite direction. Since this process is constrained by the number of books I can reasonably fit into a suitcase without attracting strange looks from the Customs officials, I doubt that the two collections will be thoroughly mixed for some time to come.

One brief remark about my ratings: I only put books on here that I own, and I tend only to own books which I rate above average (otherwise my house would collapse). Thus my average rating tends to hover around four.
