About meBooklover, compulsive book-buyer and blogging about it for over five years - do visit 'Annabel's House of Books' - see the link below. A materials scientist by training, I worked in industry for ages before belatedly becoming a mum at 40, and am now working as a school Lab Technician.
About my libraryI buy far too many books, my unread now outnumber my read ones, but if I see something interesting I have to buy it! I aim to read around 100 books each year, and to review most of the books I read - Do let me know what you think, (expanded reviews and comment are on my blog 'Annabel's House of Books' http://gaskella.wordpress.com and also http://shinynewbooks.co.uk where I am Fiction Editor).
