About meI live in Dublin, Ireland. Besides books I'm interested in computers, music, travel, languages, history and lots of other things that I really don't have time for.
About my libraryI like Late Victorian/Edwardian literature and crime novels, history in particular first half of the 20th Century, travel/exploration in particular South-Central Asia, and true crime in particular Irish. I have bought very few new books over the past few years as there are so many online books available that cater to my tastes!
