About meI work in a library (though I'm not technically a librarian), and so naturally I buy most of the books that I read! I read as a frustrated amateur writer, inspired by characters, in biographies and fiction, and building my store of trivial knowledge through non-fiction.

About my libraryRandom. Eclectic. Historical fiction and biographies, modern-day 'pulp fiction', anything with a pretty cover. If an author's style or characters appeal to me, I will latch onto them and read their whole back catalogue, from Baroness Orczy to Rex Stout. I have a growing 'To Read' list, but still keep returning to treasured favourites, because I view books as escapism not a checklist. I derive immense satisfaction from buying spanking new copies of books, even if I know it will be a while before I can get to read any new additions.

Favourite books include:

Emma by Jane Austen
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Tagging books read this year with '2014', merely to keep an accurate tally of the number I get through (also indicating library books and other sources as 'read but unowned').

GroupsI Love Jane Austen, Prolific Plaidy, The Black Orchid (A Nero Wolfe Group), We Seek Him Here ...

Favorite authorsJuliet Archer, Jane Austen, Carrie Bebris, Carol Birch, Elizabeth Chadwick, Raymond Chandler, Michel Faber, Elizabeth Gaskell, Winston Graham, Amanda Grange, Philippa Gregory, Harper Lee, Baroness Orczy, Victoria Holt, Rex Stout, Charles Todd, Markus Zusak (Shared favorites)
