Hi folks,
well, I should say this with a big smile on my face.  ;)

I live in germany and I am collecting books about Blues and the music/history all around.
I started a blog a couple of years ago where you can find many books about the music that we love.
This is NOT a downloading blog. I just scanned the front and back covers of the books and the inlay, the content page.

This Blog is for starters or for those who wanna get an overview of material on the market, maybe to start his own collection.
The books are out there, they are waiting to get buy and read.....

Please let me know when there is a book missing...I`m sure there are dozens...

Thanks
Mario Hemken.....

Wow, that's a huge labor of love you've got going there Mario.

Skimming through it I found many titles I had not seen before, but my library is miniscule compared to many other weenies.  It's great to have the "meta content" images to view, and the scans are very good. I will be browsing through the collection as time permits.

Hi Mario:

Thank you for all the hard work that went into putting this together. It's a great resource. Like Rivers, I ran across many titles that I was unaware of. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated by anyone interested in reading more about the music we love.

--And welcome to Weenie Campbell!

Great idea and a very nice website! I love the fact that you put the table of contents, which are useful to better understand the content - obviously! - of the book and how it is organized.
Well done and keep adding books!
