Notes to the list

The list does not contain study literature or handbooks.

Author: To save space, only one author per book made it into the list, “et al” means there were other authors as well, sometimes only one more.

Title: I’ve tried to use the book’s English title if available, no matter which language I read it in. Thus “Death in Venice” appears as such in two entries, despite I read the first one in Swedish (“Döden i Venedig”) and the second one in original German (“Der Tod in Venedig”), which can be seen in the language column. In general, I’ve cut the long subtitle from books such as “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business” and “Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind”. In the case of biographies, if the subtitle includes the name of the person which the book is about, I’ve included the person’s name in a parenthesis.

Pub: The year the book was first published or (in the case of for example Kafka) written, sometimes along with a newer publishing date; “Puerilities” was a collection of poems first published in year 100 by Strato, but the translation is from 2001.

Country: Not always so easy to pick. Generally it refers to where the author was born or at least spent considerable time before moving to a new country. Thus, Willy Kyrklund is counted as Finland despite having lived most of his life in Sweden (and being a Finland-Swede writing in Swedish).

G = Genre. F for Fiction, FS for Fiction Shortstories, N for Nonfiction, B for Biographies including letters and diaries. Manga refers both to manga books and thinner doujinshi. Pl and Po for Play and Poetry respectively (though I started writing out those genres after a while).

Lang = Language. The language I read the book in, followed by a parenthesis with the language the book was written in (if different from the one I read it in).

R = Read, which refers to the year in which I read the book.

✮ = the number of stars I gave to book, from 1 (worst) to 5 (best). This grading is highly subjective and does usually not say much about the objective quality of a book. It’s more about how much I enjoyed it, which might be influenced by my situation in life when I read it, or my mood in general. I also notice that I was much more prone to give higher scores in the early years, whereas I almost never give out fives nowadays. So for the first years, you can deduct a star for each book to make the grading more consistent with later years.

P = number of Pages. I haven’t filled this in yet (with a few exceptions) and might never do it since it’s a hassle to find and is different for different editions. But it can be useful to see whether a book is a thick compilation or a thin novella.

C = Comment. Not sure what to use this column for, but the “@” sign means it was an ebook.
