About meFavourite quotes:

'Surviving meant being born over and over.' (from Fear of Flying by Erica Jong)

'There is no harm in having ambitions; but he had ambitions and called them ideals. The old sense of honour taught men to suspect success; to say, "This is a benefit; it may be a bribe." The new nine-times-accursed nonsense about Making Good teaches men to identify being good with making money.' (Father Brown in 'The Green Man' by G K Chesterton)

About my libraryMy library is divided into 'Leeds library' and 'Florida library' as I live in the UK but was born in the States. I have a fairly large collection of books back in the U.S. but right now I can only add what I remember being on those shelves.
