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.
