Om migFrench, b.1952. Retired seismologist & occasional translator. I appreciate l'humour anglais, especially the Monty Python's—sorry for those who hate them.
Picture credit: John Hayls painted my portrait in 1666, long before the computer era. I have allowed The National Portrait Gallery, London to display it in their room 7.
My first post on LT, dated December 8, 2006: As a brand new member of the group [the Folio Society Devotees], I'm wondering if many of you have already read Life, a User's Manual by Georges Perec. Perhaps as some of you did with your most-beloved book, I'm trying to convince the FS [the Folio Society] that 'this is a book they should absolutely publish'.

Pense-bête

Om mit bibliotekThanks to my subscription to The Folio Society from 2003 onward, I discovered classics I had never heard of before: like Elizabeth in Alan Bennett's novella, I am an opsimath. I almost never read books twice. (So why do I keep them?) There are so many works to discover, & I am such a slow reader that I am doomed to die facing a mountain of books I would have liked to read. (This last sentence influenced by my reading of The Anatomy of Melancholy. ;-) However, I do not buy too many books in advance.
My main interest lies in diaries & biographies, sometimes linked to scientific discoveries or explorations.
We (my wife & I) own an indeterminate number of books in French (she is a much quicker reader than me, but our books are two disjoint sets, if I may use this terminology used in set theory). I also own some books in German.

My rating
Some books are left unrated. The reason is that either I read them too many years ago, or I haven't read them yet. I don't see the point in rating all books with 4 or 5 stars. The following guidelines allow me to keep the average rating close to 2.75:

= I have re-read this book
= I must re-read this book
= You must read this book
= I recommend this book
= It has been rewarding to read this book
= Some rare passages were uninteresting
= Some passages were interesting
= Some rare passages were interesting
= Boring
= I couldn't finish this book
-------------------------------
For reference books:
= Daily use
= Once a week
= Once a month
= Once every 4 months
= Once a year
Note: use can vary a lot over months or years. I decided to rate it here when it reached its maximum.
