About meIf you are dropping by for the first time, please leave me a message to say Hi, or to share what you are reading. I would love to hear from you and I will reply.
About my libraryFor some strange reason over the years I have completely lost several libraries, the last one I had to leave behind in South Africa which consisted of some rare books, collected over 20 years or so, which I will probably never find again. I have about 200 books which I love and want to read again. Books that I never intend to read again I give away to Charity shops.
