Wish list

What follows is a list of books (and other things) I would like to have for various reasons, and all of them are guaranteed to please me highly. If not otherwise specified, I only want books in their original languages. In cases when I do not know the original language, an alternative title has been given in the preferred language. This list is always up-to-date, since I use it myself to keep track of what I want. Whenever I buy or receive books, I remove them from the list. Since I keep detailed information on books I have or have read, it is easy to see if I have already read a particular book by browsing my LibraryThing profile.

    Du borde verkligen göra den här listan lättare att hitta…

    Det må vara sant, men hur? Den är knappast tillräckligt viktig för att den ska ha en egen plats i någon meny och jag kan inte komma på något bättre ställe än att lägga den i inledningen till litteratursidan. Har du några förslag är det super!
