About meI've been a passionate bookworm all my life. Nowadays, I read about 70% fiction and 30% non-fiction. Favourite genres include nineteenth and pre-WW2 classics, Euro (as opposed to Nordic) crime, history, historical biography, historical fiction, science and travel.

About my libraryBooks catalogued include those in my library and those I've read since 2003. Ratings are only given to books for reading, so don't include reference or text books.
5-an all-time favourite (last star often added later), 4-excellent; 3.5-good, reluctant to put down; 3-decent enough if not unputdownable; 2-disappointing, sometimes even not finished; 1-disliked (usually a lot!), often unfinished.

GroupsFifty States Fiction (or Nonfiction) Challenge, Folio Society devotees, HMS Surprise, I Love Jane Austen, It's a LondonThing, Slightly Foxed - An appreciation

Favorite authorsJane Austen, J. L. Carr, Charles Dickens, Sarah Dunant, Margaret Elphinstone, Lisa Jardine, Donna Leon, Jan Morris, Patrick O'Brian, Claire Tomalin, Jenny Uglow, Virginia Woolf (Shared favorites)
