Om mit bibliotekThese are all books I've read and enjoyed. Many books that I've read that are well-regarded but I haven't liked enough are not listed here, like The Sound and the Fury, for example. The idea in my mind is that,if I could have a large house with its own library room with large windows and comfortable chairs and a fireplace, etc., these are the books that I'd like to have surrounding me.
