About meI'm English but live in wonderful Scotland. I'm not very good at reading things that aren't work-/study-related but am trying. I keep buying books with good intentions to read them, but then get distracted. I love the ROOT and Category Challenge groups here as they are great for motivating me to try and conquer Mt. TBR.

In a nutshell: a bit of a nerd, occasional flashes of brilliance.

About my libraryIt's a bit random! I add things as I start them, rather than catalogue all the books I own before I read them. My collection includes fiction, ethnography, biography, travel, comedy, music, art, faith, history, all sorts really. Eventually I want this to detail everything in my home library and books I've read (eg from the actual library). I'm more into non-fiction generally, but am consciously trying to read some of the fiction on my shelves too.
