- A propos de ma bibliothèque
- This library contains books which I enjoyed reading when I was a child and an adolescent. I was and still am an avid reader. My best childhood memories were of all the wonderful books I read. In some instances, I have included books that authors wrote to continue a series, which were written after I became an adult, as I have read some of these as well. The editions that I have chosen are not necessarily the ones I read, as those were generally older.
This library also contains books which I read as an adolescent or adult. After all, I didn't have time to read everything that interested me when I was a child or an adolescent. In addition, I have reread, as an adult, several of the books which I truly enjoyed as a child or adolescent. Some of them were truly as great as I remembered, although others were less so, unfortunately. Nevertheless, I have read a great many interesting books throughout my life.
