My Bookshelf

Next to the projects you may discover in My Interests and other cares such as traveling and global politics, I read quite a lot and usually buy books second-hand in print for a Dollar or two.


In My Bookshelf @Goodreads*), you’ll find some of the books, I am currently reading or read in the past.

The types include both fiction as well as non-fiction and the genre range goes from Science Fiction to Action to Adventure to Mystery to Thriller to (Auto)Biographies to (Controversial)Literature to Suspense to Horror to Poetry and some Fantasy.

“Think before you speak. Read before you think.”

*) Goodreads is a “social cataloging” website that allows individuals to freely search its database of books, annotations, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions, surveys, polls, blogs, and discussions. At the time of writing this, there were 80 million members registered, 2.3 billion books added and 80 million reviews recorded.
