Acerca de míI'm a history and literature buff, so most of my reading is in that direction. I mostly read (older) classics, though I also like some modern novelists. To me books reflect (an aspect of) society: this is very obvious in one of my all-time favourites, War and Peace, but also in the wonderful Discworld series by Terry Pratchett (a true heir to Jonathan Swift).

I graduated as a historian (middle ages) and followed up with a master in Library and Information Science. I now work in the historical City Library of Antwerp (Belgium) where I am responsible for the old books, books that were printed before 1830. For a booklover, it is the best job in the world. I am also a book historian, publishing academic articles now and then about the history of the book in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Acerca de mi bibliotecaMy library is too large for my appartment and is spread out over various rooms. Books are sometimes put in double lines on the shelves. Boxes and piles are everywhere. I really need to move to a bigger place with a proper library room. Or maybe to a library with living quarters.

I acquire books mostly on a 'it's-so-cheap!'-basis, meaning I have a lot of second-hand books, ex-library copies, old books, and a lot of softcover pocket books.

As to the contents, it's rather varied. A lot of it is literature, mostly classic novels. There's a lot on history in general and history of the book. I have some art books with fancy pictures, and a few bibliophile / private press editions. There's some poetry. There' are some trashy novels too. Most of my books are in Dutch but there are a lot in English too, some in French and German, one or two in Latin.
