"Soyons reconnaissants envers les gens qui nous rendent heureux.
Ils sont les jardiniers qui font fleurir notre âme"

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

Marcel Proust

Welcome to my bookcrossing profile!

I like to read books in all above mentioned languages.

En ce moment, les livres français sont une obsession. P.ex. les livres de Daniel Pennac sont dans ma liste de lecture. Il y a les autres auteurs aussi, mais il n'y a pas d'espace de mettre toute la liste ici.

My favourite books and authors are mainly somehow tied to indigenous cultures, eg. Tibetans, Australian Aboriginals, American Indians, Inuits, or Samis in my home country. The Indonesian author Pramoedya Ananta Toer would be very interesting - one study book was filled with his excerpts. Anything that is different from main stream catches my curiosity pretty easily.

The examples of lighter books that I enjoy reading are the books by Rick Riordan, the Dortmunder adventures by Donald Westlake and anything by Alexander McCall Smith :)

I reached my milestone of 300 registered books on 27th Sep, 2008. 400 registered books on 5th May, 2009. 500 registered books on 24th Feb, 2010. 600 registered books on 29th May, 2012. 700 registered books on 17th Sep, 2015.
The figure of 200 wild released books appeared on 3rd Oct, 2008. 300 wild released on 12 June, 2010. 400 wild released on August 26, 2011. 500 wild released on 9th June, 2012. 600 wild released on 22st January, 2015, 700 wild released on 16th July, 2016.
Total amount of books in my bookshelf is bigger due to my earlier activity in bookrings and -rays.

300 rekisteröidyn kirjan raja saavutettu 27.9.2008, 400 rekisteröityä 5.5.2009, 500 rekisteröityä 24.2.2010. 600 rekisteröityä 29.5.2012. 700 rekisteröityä 17.9.2015.
200 villin vapautuksen lukema 3.10.2008. 300 villin vapautuksen lukema 12.6.2010. 400 villin vapautuksen lukema 26.8.2011. 500 villin vapautuksen lukema 9.6.2012. 600 villiä vapautusta ylittyi 22.1.2015, 700 villiä vapautusta 16.7.2016.
Hyllyssä olevien kirjojen yhteenlaskettu määrä on kohonnut mukavan suureksi aiemman rinki- ja sädeaktiivisuuden ansiosta.
