About meMy husband calls me a bookaholic, and it's true. They are piled all over the house at the moment. My first degree was theatre studies and I am currently studying law as I need to feel I'm learning something all the time; a day where I manage to read something interesting isn't wasted.
About my libraryI generally don't like to read fiction by an author who is still alive, although there are exceptions (Umberto Eco is one of my favourites). I usually tend to live somewhere between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries when I'm reading. I buy books (old and new) obsessively but feel it is a waste to read them immediately; they have to sit on the bookshelf waiting for the right time. Therefore, my library of unread books is huge.
Favorite authorsJane Austen, Wendell Berry, Ambrose Bierce, James Boswell, Raymond Chandler, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Umberto Eco, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Dion Fortune, M. R. James, Sir Walter Scott, Laurence Sterne, Dennis Wheatley, P. G. Wodehouse (Shared favorites)
