About meDilettante with antiquarian delusions. Soulless minion of orthodoxy. General loafer. Devout lover of cake.

About my libraryA mixture of bought and borrowed books. I'm on a 'hey, you' basis with a number of my local librarians, but I can't seem to stop myself from making purchases. A few digital copies have been sneaking in recently.

I've become unforgivably lax in tagging and starring my recent entries. Alas.
