About meI am just a simple country boy now living in London, working as a civil servant in the Department of Education.

In the early 1980s I completed a Bachelors degree, and then a PhD, in English, specialising in medieval literature. Then, after a sort of road to Damascus moment in the early 1990s I completed a Bachelors degree and then PhD in Mathematics.

Remaining a sucker for punishment I have just completed a Bachelors Degree in History, too.

I agree with you absolutely on [Game of thrones].
Many thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries James - I'll have a look at yours asap. Greetings from Monnickendam, The Netherlands!! Andrea
Enjoyed reading your reviews, and had a good laugh!
Welcome to the 75 group!
Since you live there and I've always wanted to go, is Gibson's portrayal of London accurate? I doubt a hotel such as Cabinet really exists, but is there something close maybe?
$25 gets you life membership. I think it's worth it, if you use the forums and post reviews as well it's not just making a list. I'm at around 2,200 books currently, all books I either own currently or have read in the past but do not or have never owned. The tagging system is good fun as well. John
good to see you're listing books avidly, Ian!
