About meI can´t remember when I read my first book, but I also can´t remember being anywhere without a book. People complain for not being able to drag me from bookshops and I can spend many happy hours there. One problem that I have is that there are so many new books I would like to read, but also so many books that I am friends with that I have to reread ever so often. I have a very varied taste, with a weakness for books about art and anything British, but I also love mysteries, historical novels, plays...children stories.. humour... and I could go on and on. I am true to authors I like, sometimes it is the topic that catches me, but I also often pick books by their cover.

About my libraryMy library is growing steadily, even though I am no longer allowed to buy books. This is a rule I break very often.

Hi Alena,

Thanks for the shout-out! Hope you find some interesting ideas from my library or reading lists (I comment on the 75-book challenge thread).

I have been enjoying the Nicola Upson mysteries featuring Josephine Tey. They don't measure up to Tey's own novels -- sigh! -- but they are still good, and I enjoy watching her weave fact and fiction together. I'm about to delve into her fourth/latest, Fear in the Sunlight, which apparently includes Alfred Hitchcock.


Thanks for the recommendation! I've added it to my TBR list. I've been working on rereading some old favorites this year. I've neglected that aspect of reading for a long time, but I'm really enjoying it now!


We have so many great books in common! I am not in Prague, but enjoyed visiting that bookstore when I was there.

I noticed you also have a blog. I do as well...

You'll have to stop by and talk books! Anytime you want suggestions or read a good book, I'd love to discuss it with you. Feel free to email me at or message me here. It's hard to find people who so closely share your taste in books!

It's been ages since I saw a movie version of the Three Musketeers--I remember the one with Michael York, which I recall liking--but I saw it when I was little. I feel the same way about The Count of Monte Cristo--the remake of several years ago did not work well with me... :) I'll let you know when I get to The House at Tyneford--maybe this will *allow* me to bump it up my pile! :)
Hi--Just saw your comment--sorry, I've not been checking in here as often as I would like. February was a busy month and I seem to have fallen behind. I have not yet read The House at Tyneford. I have the UK paper edition (The Novel in the Viola) and have been meaning to read it. It seems like something I would like very much. I am thoroughly enjoying The Three Musketeers and see that the remake of the movie is out in DVD this week. Cheers! Danielle
Hey! I added you to my Interesting Libraries too. I haven't read The House at Tyneford yet, but I'm hoping to get to it this month. Did you like it?
Of course it's okay - I feel very flattered!
Ah! I see you own a copy of "Paintings in the Uffzi and Pitti Galleries" by Mina Gregori.
I edited the translation of that book, and you will find my name on the page with ISBN etc.
It is one of the things I am very proud of.
I am very honoured to have my library added to your list of interesting ones!
As you can see, I have reciprocated. :-)
Why don't you join the Virago group? There are several members, all lovely and interesting people, and I think you would like it.
Let me know if I can be of any help.
Happy reading.

Paola :-))
Hello! Yes, I have read 'The Egg and I' but it was so long ago and, sadly, I don't own it. I think it might be time for a re-read! It's interesting that you speak Swedish. A friend of mine is married to a Swedish man, and their son is studying Swedish at university. Thanks for adding my library!
