Monographs, Hebrew, Epigraphic Hebrew Inscriptions, books with a bit of occurrences of Latin words, Christian "Gnosticism", Polish National Faith (Rodnovery), (Environmental and a bit of Ethnological) History as well as that I've recently renewed interest in Architectural History, more modern Cultural History and Early Christian art /Aug. 2. 2017 edited Oct. 24. 2018 + veganism and organically/locally produced food, skincare and fragrant oil products just as treats and needed in fine culture participation/creation; particular interest in books copyrighted 1952-2010; christianforums.com; CPU preference and recommendation: Only ALL AMD CPU:s except E2; Scrivener as both Win and Mac versions early June 2015, HDDRegenerator.net on July 17. 2015. /Edited June 5. 2018 Now I've installed 12 on the desktop on Dec. 31. 2017. Addition Oct. 24. 2018: Providing support for my friendship networks and for (the relatives of) my best friends in Poland, France and Helsinki, and starting up a group for commentaries discussion (I know they are a biased resource type so I want to with my input and moderation steer the discussion to minimise the bias effect for the members.)
