About meI am a bookseller and former scientist based in Bristol in the UK. I sell books, review books, organize author events and attend the odd book group.

I used to blog on LT under the name Depressaholic.

About my libraryMy library consists of everything I remember reading cover to cover. I no longer own most of the books listed.

I tend to read translated fiction and 20th Century classics. My reading was dominated for many years by a challenge I set myself to read at least one book by an author from every country on earth. I passed 150 a while back and have mostly been concentrating on other things since then.

I am most active in the Reading Globally group, where I have a thread describing my journey through world literature.
