About meI've been a passionate bookworm all my life, often found curled up with a book on the stairs as a child. A pretty eclectic reader, my favourite genres include nineteenth century classics, Euro (as opposed to Nordic) crime, history, historical biography, science and travel.

About my libraryBooks catalogued include those in my library and those I've read since 2003. Ratings are generally only given to books for reading, so usually 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-OK, solid read; 2-disappointing, may not have finished; 1-disliked (usually a lot!)

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)
