Hello and welcome to my bookshelf!
If you have found one of the books I have registered: Please feel free to keep it as long as you want. If you would like to keep it, you can also adopt it for your permanent collection - or pass it on to a friend or release it into the "wild", I just love seeing my books being released into the wild and bringing joy to strangers ;-)

Bienvenue sur mon profil !
Si vous avez trouvé l'un des livres que j'ai enregistrés, n'hésitez pas à le garder aussi longtemps que vous voulez. Si vous souhaitez l'adopter, vous pouvez le mettre dans votre "collection permanente". Ou bien relâchez-le pour qu'il puisse continuer son voyage ;-)

Cities where I have released books include: Edinburgh, Luxembourg, Rome, Paris, Penzance, St. Ives, Marazion, Mousehole, Monaco, Grasse, Mandelieu-La Napoule, Cannes, Wuppertal, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt am Main, Wülfrath, Torquay, Bruxelles, Solingen, Puerto de la Cruz, London, Amsterdam ...
"Vous êtes perdus si vous oubliez que les fruits sont à tous, et que la terre n'est à personne ...", Jean-Jacques Rousseau

“You spend too much time on ephemeras. The majority of modern books are merely wavering reflections of the present. They disappear very quickly. You should read more old books. The classics. Goethe. What is merely new is the most transitory of all things. It is beautiful today, and tomorrow merely ludicrous.”, Franz Kafka

[Original: "Sie beschweren sich zu sehr mit Eintagsfliegen. Die Mehrzahl dieser modernen Bücher sind nur flackernde Spiegelungen des Heute. Das erlischt sehr rasch. Sie sollten mehr alte Bücher lesen. Klassiker. Goethe. Das Alte kehrt seinen innersten Wert nach außen - die Dauerhaftigkeit. Das Nur-Neue ist die Vergänglichkeit selbst. Die ist heute schön, um morgen lächerlich zu erscheinen. Das ist der Weg der Natur.", Janouch: Gespräche mit Kafka, S. 28]

“How can a retreat into selfish and insecure individualism be the right response when Europe faces genuine threats, when the bonds that tie us are so powerful, when we have come so far together? How can we hope to conquer the enormous challenges of terrorism and climate change without cooperation and collaboration?”
J. K. Rowling on Brexit, the most stupid decision of the century

“In books lies the soul of the whole Past Time.”, Thomas Carlyle
