About meI've been a passionate bookworm all my life, often found curled up with a book on the stairs as a child. I'm a pretty eclectic reader but favourites include nineteenth century classics, Eurocrime, 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!)
NIL Fiction or NIL Nonfiction = rated books that are Not in Library
