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.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret - Brian Selznick I went to see the Scorsese movie "Hugo" and was enchanted though not *quite* as in love as my movie geek brother - I did, however, fall totally in love with this book. The combination of simple but effective storytelling and beautiful pencil drawings (many of which Scorsese used frame by frame in the movie) were amazing, and this is now a firm favorite of mine.
