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.

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.

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

*) Goodreads is a “social cataloging” website for books. At the time of writing this, there were 80 million members registered, 2.3 billion books added and 80 million reviews recorded.
