About meI'm in my mid 20's and have been a bookworm for as long as I remember. I have a honours degree in Building Science and 95% of a BA in Classics. I love animals and I volunteer at the local SPCA shelter in the cat runs, which I love doing. Being a Kiwi who grew up rurally, I'm a sports fan and currently I'm only an arm chair traveller, but that will change. One day.
About my libraryMy library is primarily crime/mystery fiction, historical fiction, fantasy and chic lit with a healthy dose of non-fiction. I buy as many books as possible and I keep them all. I also make good use of the public library, generally when I can't afford pretty new shinys. If I find an author I like I'll often read as much of their work as I can get my hands on.
