About meI was born in the Highlands of Scotland, went to school in Glasgow, and presently I live in England. Nowadays I only read to be entertained and I'm unlikely to offer any reviews or criticisms.

About my libraryThe books are mostly the results of my travels, education in literature and reading modern book reviews.
