Dear all.

As promised, I am posting the list I've made for myself based on the  
suggestions from all of you lovely people. I've tried to divide the  
books into different categories, though some books may fit into  
several categories (or should be moved to another category...). The  
categories themselves might also need some revising and it is not  
sorted alphabetically yet.

The idea of creating a bibliographic resource sounds great and I would  
love to collaborate on it, if possible!

Here is the list I've made so far (which is still far from complete -  
I'll continue to work on it!).

I've also posted the list on my blog, complete with links (the blog is  
in Norwegian, but the list itself is in English):
