About meI like fiddles, lap steels, guitar feedback, black humour, burning things, Jews, Russophilia, white wine, Brown Ale, black pudding, Romania, complexity and trains in foreign countries.

About my libraryHalf academic, half magpie, and significant crossover between the two. I also just inherited a shitload of irreplaceable books of northern, coal-mining, working-class and trade union history, and a sizeable collection on polar exploration. Not entirely sure what to do with these, but they're pretty.

FYI my mean/median book obscurity is WAY lower than yours.
I saw that we share an interest in poetry. I thought you might get a kick out of my book Anarchy Bell. It's unlike any poetry book you've ever read, I can guarantee it. It's viewable at Suburban
Persepolis is so, so good. You should really get the one-volume version so you don't even have to pick up a second book to read Persepolis 2. I'm hoping she'll write another one. And have you read Dead Souls? It's funny.
Glagolitic was stupid. They couldn't have just used Roman letters?

Also, you have too much Beckett.
What exactly is a Geordie? Anyway despite being horribly underread for your age you do have a nice start with the Joyce's and Beckett's and Grass's and Johnson's.
Aye -- we could be the only Geordies here...

Had a scout round, but it might just be us. Did some searches for some "Geordie" books (Burglar's Dog, Wor Al) but couldn't find any users.

It's lonely up North
