About me22, english lit grad, works in a jewellery shop, loves reading (obviously)

About my libraryI've got lots of books but like many like-minded people on librarything, I can always use more:)It's a fairly varied collection though still quite dominated by a lot of children's/YA lit that I like to re discover from time to time.
