About meI love to read, cook, travel, browse bookshops, have tea with friends, swim, cycle, run with my dog, & take photos. I love London, Boston, Calcutta, Havana, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, Barcelona, & the Cape Peninsula. I read a lot of non-fiction & poetry, and compared to many LTers, not much fiction. My favourite food is chocolate. But pomegranates are a close second. They squirt!
About my libraryMy LT library contains books that I presently own, and not titles I've borrowed or once owned but have since sold. I rate most books I've read, but generally not those written by friends or colleagues - and also not those I read long ago, or of which I read only some articles or chapters. My ratings are fairly high because I tend to ditch books I didn't enjoy, unless they fill out a collection or somehow contribute to my understanding of a field of interest.
