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.
