About meI live by the Baltic sea in Gävle in Sweden. I am married and have three grown up children and one dog. I read a lot and have done so my hole life. I also like to knit and stitch. I´m christian and sing in our church choir.
About my libraryI´ve been reading and collecting books since I was a very young girl. I tend to buy more books than I have time to read. I read in english and in swedish of course. I always enjoy a good crime story. I also like certain sf and fantasy books. I´m a bit of an anglophilian. I like to read contemporary fiction. I think the only thing I´m not so keen about is romantic lovestories.
