Over mijn bibliotheek
If only I owned a copy of every book I have read! On the other hand, the foundations of our house (not sturdy at the best of times), might give way under the weight of them all.

The books I own are an eclectic collection. They reflect a wide range of interests on my part, some of them enduring; others fleeting. I hope that by cataloguing them I might create some order out of the chaos of my numerous bookshelves, refrain from purchasing too many duplicate titles, and simply take time to appreciate anew how wonderful my collection is.
Over mij
I manage a small bookstore for a major South African book retailer. Information, books and language are so much a part of my world that I often feel that I am made up exclusively of paper and ink.
