    Very very rarely do I read a book for a second time....But...one of the few exceptions is Ferdinand Celine'..."Long Days Journey into Night" and "Death on the Installment Plan". I love the guy's work.

    ...because this THE source for almost any information around Malt you´ll propably need. Use it quite frequently whenever I want to look up something about my favorite booze.

    These two titles as well, both are specialist books for apprentices, brown one for construction and artist metal workers, grey one for metal airplane mechanics. Both are 1941 editions.
    Sometimes for looking up old methods and techniques when preparing little projects I want to perform halfway authentically, sometimes just for nostalgia.

    I don't usually re-read books. I think there are far too many books out there to read that I don't want to waste time reading ones I've already read! Ha! That being said, I've been thinking about re-reading Daniel Silva's Gabriel Allon series as they are so well done and have a wonderful way of blotting out the reality that is 2020.
