Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

Admiral Collingwood: Nelson's Own Hero

Admiral Collingwood: Nelson's Own Hero - Max     Adams A birthday present from a friend whose favourite historical characters is Collingwood, I loved learning about this man who I'd honestly not known anything about before. A great biography and def. recommended to anyone interested in the Age of Sail. It actually makes me want to pick up my Patrick O'Brian novels again, since Jack Aubry was apparently modelled quite a bit on Admiral Collingwood.
