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.

Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

Long Walk to Freedom: Autobiography of Nelson Mandela - Nelson Mandela, Kofi Annan, Danny Glover Nelson Mandela's autobiography is very interesting and impressive - I knew very little about how apartheit got started and what Mandela did before his incarceration. Also, it's narrated by someone with the right kind of voice - an African, I'd say, who can believably deliver the Xosa and Afrikaans lines. Definitely recommended!
