About meI am a tree man for the county... - living in south Wales. Avid book reader and buyer of cheap overlooked books that I find in neglected nooks and crannies, I love discovering new writers and good book shops, as well as sharing good reading recommendations.
About my libraryI like all kinds of good books. Often I read two or three at a time depending on my mood or place, typically at least one fiction and one non-fiction, but not religiously.
