About meNothing interesting, which is why I would rather talk books. But I enjoy the 'home arts' of cooking and gardening, I love cats but only since one adopted me last year. Oh and tea.
Tea and books. Always a perfect combination.

About my libraryI have an eclectic mix of books. Genres I have read over the years have been historical non fiction, horror, sci fi, mystery and classics. I have been a fan of Sherlock Holmes since I was twelve. One of the best things you can have in your home is books. New ones waiting to be read, old favourites that are dog eared and much loved.
I only keep those that mean something to me, books I know I will enjoy reading again, books that brought me many happy memories. Which is why I even have some children's books that have a special place in my heart. I don't believe that adults should only read adult books.

"A children's story that can only be
enjoyed by children, is not a good
children's story in the slightest."
C.S Lewis.

How very apt.
