About meA student of medieval literature who nearly became a librarian but ended up a priest. Currently taking some time out, living in a community, where my particular responsibility is to look after... the library!

About my libraryAfter over 7 years of membership of LT, I have finally managed to finish adding all my books to the catalogue. There is still plenty of work to be done adding details, but the books now listed in 'My Library' correspond more or less with all those I own.

It's not a particularly large collection by LT standards, but large enough when it comes to finding shelf space for everything (or when it comes to having to pack and move!). As well as a large selection of fiction (contemporary and literary fiction as well as detective, historical, historical detective, fantasy and a little sci-fi) , I have substantial collections in two professional areas of interest: medieval studies (language, literature and history, palaeography) and theology (including lots of books reference and resource books for the working minister). I also still have most of my childhood books in my collection, and have added some more recent children's and young adult books to those.

Library books and other borrowed books, once returned, are in the collection 'Read but unowned'. In time I may backdate this collection to add more of my past reading.

My 'Wishlist' collection is not much used - I may remove it altogether, as I am mainly using my Bookmooch account for my wishlist.

Hmmm. I'll be interested to see how you like Sue Grafton. (For my money, Sara Paretsky writes better than Grafton, or maybe I just like V.I. better than Kinsey.)
Hi Genny. I just noticed you left me Thingaversary wishes! Thanks! I must confess, I don't pay it too much attention, although now you have drawn attention to it... I quite like the idea of having such a cast iron excuse to buy books!

Now, what are we going to do about this Birmingham LT meet up idea??? I am rather busy for the rest of July, and then I am away in Hungary until the 22nd of August. Perhaps early September could work? How is that looking for you?
I will do all the organising - you just need to tell me a date. Oh, and what to do. I believe you are a veteran of lots of these meets ups, so give me the lowdown. Where should I announce it? Should I contact people directly and invite them? Just say the word and I'll be on the case! (Honestly!) Hx
I hope you enjoy Tolkien's Beowulf and commentary as much as I did!
Hi Genny, I will arrive at Gladstone's around 3pmish tomorrow, will be lovely to catch up.

Caroline
Thanks for pointing out my second Thingaversary Genny! I don't think I would have even realized!! Now I have an excuse to buy some books!
Happy Thingaversary, Genny! Eight years, isn't it amazing!
:) thank you.
Thanks for the Thingaversary message Genny - hadn't even noticed it had happened until you and Richard messaged me! ...I WILL check back more often this coming year...

Hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year!
Fliss
Thanks Genny for reminding me of my Thingaversary! I usually pay attention but I had completely forgotten this time around. Now I get to spend the weekend thinking about new books I might indulge in.
Delighted to hear they have it! Hope you enjoy it.
If you haven't read Buchan's "The Blanket of the Dark", then stop whatever you are doing and go and read it now!
Thank you, Genny! I didn't know there was a place to check for Thingaversaries, and a quick check of my Home Page didn't show it to me. How and where does one check? I hope you are settling in well, and have been able to visit your dog.
No probs Genny - the book went off today so I hope it reaches you soon!

All the best,
Karen
Thanks very much for the good wishes. I hope you are having a wonderful day. :)
It's still yesterday here. :-) I have another four hours to wait before I can place my order with Amazon.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Genny. L.T. is a great place to call home.
I hope that you are all settled in & I pray that your new life be fulfilling for you. You are such a blessing to others.
love,
belva
Thank you so much for my Thingaversary wishes! I totally forgot that it was my anniversary. Hmmm. That means 2 new books, and one for good measure!
Thank you, Genny! It's been an amazing ride. So many good friends acquired!

Have a lovely sofa-less book-full year ahead.

Cheers
RMD
Thanks so much Genny! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Chelle

I just wanted to offer a note of moral support in your effort to separate the St. Matthew Passion from the B-minor Mass. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to help, but I wanted to express my appreciation for your efforts (and my bewilderment that the two would somehow get mixed up).

Best,

Nathaniel
Genny, you mentioned something good happening on Heather's thread? Dare I believe that it's about a foster home for Ty? How I do hope so!
Thanks, Genny, for noticing my Thingaversary. It's all the wonderful people here who have really made my 7 years so special. Rebecca
I'm annoyed that I don't show up on your weighted "books with" list at all but am near the top of your "raw" list. I thought surely that my church history and theology would bring me up. Oh well.
'Next time I get a problem I'll see whether it is one I feel I can tackle! I'll favourite your post as a reminder...'

Or send me a comment, and I'll try to walk you through it.

I'm delighted you were pleased with the books; I enjoyed choosing them. I haven't actually read any of the titles I bought you, though I own the von Arnim and the Frankau (neither in Virago). I'm dying to get the Thirkell myself now; I haven't read any of hers yet, though I own Ankle Deep.

Enjoy the books!

Nicky
Hi Genny,

Thanks for stopping by to say hi. Life got very busy this year and I sort of dropped off the internet. I've been lurking and reading, but almost never have the time to respond. I miss the bookish interaction though, so I'm hoping to be around more from now on. It was lovely to hear from you.

Katie
Thanks Genny. I don't think Eve's view of women writers or spinsterhood is necessarily the same as Katey's.
Genny, here's what I wrote about the Kin quartet.

Peter Dickinson is an English writer of children's books for whom I have had the greatest respect ever since I first read his Changes Trilogy in the 1970s. Since then, he has met and married Robin McKinley, so I admire his taste even more now. This is a four book series, written at a 4-6 grade level, imagining the adventures of one of the first groups of humans with language as they cope with the changing environment, natural disasters, and other groups of proto-humans in the world about two hundred thousand years ago. Each book is narrated by a different young person of the Moonhawk clan after their clan is broken and dispersed by an invasion, as the young group searches for other members of their clan and a new place to live. I had read the first two a number of years ago and then got distracted before finishing the last two, but am taking advantage of September Series and Sequels to complete the series so I can donate the books to my former school's library.

Dickinson paints a fascinating picture of the landscapes and peoples of a prehistoric world, with interspersed "Old Tales" and totem animals. His imagined societies form a context within which we come to know each of the young people's dreams and fears as they make places for themselves in their world. Although the language is simple, the ideas are not.
Thinking of you and the three(!) weddings tomorrow.

Heather
I just looked at your book details for Rounding the Mark, and I'm still awed. Wow!
I'm off to check my statistics and then I AM GOING TO READ A BOOK!!!!

OOOoooo! Handsome!
I'm so glad I came over!!
Genny, the book I was talking about is called "The First Verse" by Barry McCrea. You can read my review at http://www.librarything.com/work/book/81209855

I found it quite a challenging book. Their bibliomancy reminds me so much of how we sometimes end up using scripture to find what God wants us to do in our life. Not, I hope, in the extremes they take it to but it does show the dangers I've seen in some Christian circles. I believe even St Francis was fond of taking God's direction by dipping into scripture.
Oh, and Night Waking was a Kindle daily deal a few days ago.
Don't mention bad housekeeping to me, our housekeeping is beyond dreadful.
Hi Genny - thank you so much for returning my last Plass and for including the Pym too. I also loved the wrapping tape you used - so funny (and true) :-)

I hope things are going ok after your busy weekend. I love the new profile picture of your Viragoes - so many lovely green spines...

Heather
Hi Genny, it was nice to meet you last night. I hope you didn't have to wait too long to have your books signed - I didn't envy Hilary Mantel having to sit there for so long making small talk with strangers!
I have lurked on yours and Heather's threads before, but find it hard to keep up with you 75ers. Apologies if I came across as stalkerish - that's what the Internet does to you. I'm harmless, I promise!
Message from Luci:

'It's called Albertinis and coming from Euston, you cross Chalton Street and it's just a couple of minutes' walk.'

http://www.allinlondon.co.uk/directory/1150/47021.php

I've finally confirmed that I can join you and Heather during the day tomorrow: here's my message to her recycled (short on time):

"Just to let you know I have finally confirmed that I can take tomorrow off (I've decided to ask for the full day although I could have come to work in the morning and then just popped across the road easily - feeling a bit tired after a long expedition across London to visit my boss in hospital in Watford yesterday).

Is the plan to meet at Euston or Kings Cross? What's the British Library exhibition that you and Genny were thinking of? I'm happy to go along with any decisions.

I have a few books to bring you.

Is there a plan for where to eat lunch? - if not, there is a lovely and quite reasonably priced cafe on Chalton Street, between Euston and the British Library.

Did you still want to go to Persephone books?"
I did find the tune -- newer ones often have an attribution...... this one doesn't seem to - nor does anyone seem to be sure if it's irish, english, scottish -- which tends to date a tune. I plan to ask around at my next class which is on Tuesday week!
What a lovely message you posted on Angela's thread....So kind, so caring, so other directed. You are a lovely, wonderful soul!
Genny
Thank you ever so much for your outreach. It means the world to me.

Love
Linda
Genny, thank you for giving me the sad news about Janet. I wonder when her family might have thought about LT if you hadn't been in touch. Thank you!
Peace,
Peggy
Hi Genny, no hard feelings from my side. Terri (tymfos) has already done a good job defending you. You have a great friend there. Bye. See you sometime on LT.
Thank you for trying and for keeping me up to date!
Genny, you're in! Thanks for signing up!
Laura
Genny your welcome. I have lived away from England for almost 20 years and the old place becomes more unfamiliar to me everytime I manage to get back. I have been living in Malaysia since 1994 and have pretty much settled here with my wife, Hani (SHE-WHO-MUST-BE-OBEYED in my posts!), my two girls Belle and Yasmyne and my son Kyran.
Wondered with regard to your profession whether you think Dawn French helped or hindered acceptance of ladies into the Clergy? I loved the shows when we eventually got them over here and IMO in a modern society ladies have an equal role in ministering to the adherents of their faith as men. Good luck with your sermon - it must be difficult having to meet a deadline every week and try to come up with something topical and interesting.
Thanks. I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on the new rendition of Jane Eyre! I hope your day is sunny and blessed.

Love
Linda
I just read about Katia in this evening's paper. I'm glad you're not getting worse!
Oh thank you! I really have developed tunnel vision in my old age and had simply ignored the other options up there. I'm tempted to put somebody on my private watch list just to see how private it really is.
Hi Genny, thanks for dropping by. LT is just the greatest thing since sliced bread IMHO. In addition to cataloging my books, very publicly, it turns out and thereby being able to share that part of myself with more people than I ever dreamed — and vice versa, of course, as it is so interesting to peek into other people's libraries and get a sense of who they are as well — I have also enjoyed getting acquainted with people from all over the world through the forums. Your thread, by the way, is amazing! And it epitomizes exactly what is so great about LT.

You mentioned the library at St. Gall, which first came into my purview more than thirty years ago when someone sent me a postcard depicting the library. I still have that postcard. I'd never seen anything so beautiful and couldn't wait until I had an opportunity to visit, which I finally did in 2005. The picture at the top of my profile is not as beautiful as the postcard, but it gives an idea of the baroque opulence of the place. Hope you'll have an opportunity one day to visit. It is indeed a fascinating place.

I have visited England a few times but have never gotten up to the northernmost parts. The city of York and Castle Howard and Rievaulx Abbey are about as far north as I've gotten. And since I'm part Scottish, I'm sorry to say I haven't gotten to Scotland yet either. But there is always hope for a future visit.

Best,

Suzanne
Thank you!
Hi Genny,

Thanks so much for your message and for your help. It means a lot to know that you're thinking of us. You'll be pleased to hear that with 8 days to go our paperwork has finally materialised at the church, so we are definitely getting married next weekend! To say that I am relieved does not even begin to cover it.

Now I can relax and look forward to it all, at long last.

Katie x
Hi, sorry to have been so long in replying, I had a deadline and had to drop all e-mail for a while. I did ASNC 1994-7, and then I was in the dept doing my MPhil, PhD and post-doc for a while after that. Michael Lapidge taught me lots and I heard from him just the other day -- I think he's being fantastically productive in retirement. I've done some bits of typing for Malcolm Parkes but I don't know him very well. He's still writing but slowing down a lot, I think. You must have known Ray Page too, whom I got to know quite well while I was at Corpus. He too is slower than he was but still has his marvellously offbeat sense of humour.

Thank-you so much for the recommendation about the George Herbert book. I've been half-looking for a book like that for years. I'll track it down in a library somewhere and see how it goes.

I really think it's fantastic that even though I have put none of my academic book collection up on LibraryThing it still managed to link two people with such similar academic backgrounds!

Rebecca
Hi, how funny, I did ASNC too! Then I did a PhD in palaeography with David Dumville, and then worked in various places like the BL and the ASNC department again (with Simon Keynes as my boss), also the Parker Library which was absolutely brilliant. Unfortunately I'm not sure it's going to work out for me to get a proper long-term job and I'm getting tired of short-term contracts, so I will probably be leaving academia at some point soon. But once one has been trained up in the ways of ASNC I'm not sure it's ever possible to leave completely -- I find myself wanting TV documentaries to have proper footnotes before I'll believe them.

I feel like it is a bit harsh on Herbert that he's had so much projected on him. What I really want is some good criticism of his poems, the old-fashioned sort that helps you to understand them better. Preferably written by Rowan Williams. A friend of mine who was a college chaplain got me reading lots of theology a few years ago. He would print out articles off the internet about Simone Weil, and radical orthodoxy and all that, and it's something I'd love to study. But I don't feel the slightest call or desire to be a vicar so I doubt I ever will find the time to work on it properly.

Rebecca
Hi Genny, thanks for your comment at my LibraryThing profile. My academic area is Anglo-Saxon England and medieval manuscripts, but the problem is that a lot of my academic books have more than one equal co-author or co-editor. A lot of them may not fit onto LibraryThing without annoying contortions. I'm interested to see you're currently reading "If you meet George Herbert on the road, kill him"! I thought about getting that myself because I find that whole Kill The Buddha thing intriguing, and I came across it while looking for a good book about George Herbert. (I'm not a vicar though.) I'd be interested to know if it's any good.
Yours, Rebecca (annesadleir)
Hi Genny, just to let you know that my copy of Divinity Road arrived today.:) Although having started [The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet] yesterday, I think it will be next week before I start reading it.
HelenNZ
So sorry to be out of touch with you. I think of you and hope you are well. I hope you enjoy your time away and can read and relax.

Hugs to you.

Linda
Thanks for that Genny. I have renewed hope of its arrival. I love the vicarious pleasure of anticipating a book in the mail. I am home alone today, with no car and steady autumn rain. I already have a courgette cake in the oven, new recipe and might take a wander weather permitting around our local second-hand shops, perhaps the library to see if I can spy any treasures.
I will make the most of the tranquillity, as next weekend I will be feeding the family.:)
Thinking of you and wondering how you are.

A beautiful dog and a GORGEOUS shot! I wouldn't mind having it as a screensaver!
Hi genny, I noticed that you also won an ER copy of Divinity Road. Has your copy arrived yet? I'm feeling a little disappointed but I am aware it might take longer to reach NZ.
HelenNZ
Hi Genny : ). I'm browsing 75er threads and was excited to find "What We Are Reading: Classics." Enjoyed some of your comments and so came over for a visit! We have a good selection in common. Nancy
Hi Genny, and thank you for visiting my 75-book challenge thread. I saw on another thread that you were going to try Trollope's Palliser series, which I very much recommend. "The Eustace Diamonds" (number 3) has to be one of my favourite novels. I do have plans to continue with Doctor Thorne, but I keep reserving things from the library and getting sidetracked! I think that's a downside of Project Gutenberg books on the Kindle - no sense of urgency in getting to them.
Hi Genny, thanks for visiting my thread. I loved Music and Silence and have added it to my favourites list. I am a big Rose Tremain fan. Her books are so diverse.
You have some wonderful photos on your thread. I love the beauty of the landscape and try not to take it for granted. NZ provides plenty of opportunities to stand in awe of the land.
HelenNZ
Hello Genny
I did my Eng/Theol at Kent University, a very long time ago...
I'm quite jealous of your involvement in the CSLewis society - I was pretty obsessed with his writings as a teenager, and throughout my 20s (still quote him a lot), and wrote my undergrad. dissertation on his theology as expressed in Narnia, so you can imagine I pounced on Planet Narnia (my husband's then curate told me about it, as he knows Dr Ward)I must say, I'm very impressed with it. I made a 'reader's guide' to the Inklings as part of my Librarianship MSc - you're welcome to a copy if you're interested...
The book you're reading about re-thinking ministry sounds interesting - I look forward to your review!
Best wishes

GG
Hi, Genny,
Just to say my book arrived home safely, thanks!
Janet
Hello,
I noticed your library when I added 'Strangely Warmed', then on seeing your favourites - all of which I heartedly agree with - I felt I had to say hello.

I am, oddly, a student of literature and theology who married and priest and became a librarian....

Anyway, hello.

GG
Merry Christmas, Genny! I think you may actually be here now, and I can't find your thread, but I wanted to speak..... We'll have nothing in the way of snow like you've had, and since we don't have to be anywhere tomorrow, it should be strictly recreational - but I'm excited. We haven't had any accumulation at all in several years.
Hope your Christmas has been a blessed time for you and that after tomorrow you can get some good rest. I expect you'll need it!
Thanks for being a friend here!
Peggy
Genny

I'm simply stopping by to say that I know the first holiday after the loss of a loved one can be difficult. How are you my friend?

Love
Linda
ok, me again - dinner not on, but have been through your WL.

Do you want my 3 Martin Walkers and the Shape of Water as well? If so I'll reserve them for you.

Hope all is well and it's not freezing over there. It's going to be -1 on Thursday morning here!!

Cheers
Cushla
I am WAY behind on threads, and haven't said hi for ages (but I saw the lovely Norway photos then got distracted).

I just reserved the Finkler Question for you on Bookmooch - do you want it? I could have asked first, but I am itching to send it happily on its way somewhere, and added it then looked at wishlists and yours was one of the many that popped up. If you don't want it then I'll let it loose!

And I think I have something else I was going to send you - will check your WL as soon as dinner is on...
I'm sorry to hear you have a cold. I hope you are able to rest this weeeknd.
Please send your address to me.

I'm ever so sorry that you are not well.

I think of you often.

Sending loving prayers,
Linda
Genny

How are you with the grief process? I know this year is a difficult one for you.
Stopping by to say I hope you are having a rejuvenating vacation!
I hope you will have a wonderful vacation. You deserve a break.

Thanks Genny

Please tell me how you are doing in your grief process. I know that you lost your beloved God mother.

Simply stopping by to say congratulations on your hot review listed on today's home page. Primarily, I write to check in with you to see how you are doing. I know you are grieving and thus want to send a big hug to you.
Hi Genny

Just wanted to let you know that I'll be thinking of you over the next few days as you go to the funeral. Hugs and prayers at this difficult time.

The pictures you've posted are lovely, and I'm glad you have those special memories of your godmother.

God bless you.

Caty.
Hi Genny! Thanks for finding me on BookMooch.

I used to be really active on BookMooch but have really slowed down - too many unread books as it is. But I'm still mooching stuff to friends, and I have a few on your WL already - I'm only too happy to send them to you (The Shape of Water, and Jane and Prudence once I've read it, and a few others but I have just shut the window down. Can you wait a few months? I will have both kids with me for the next 9 weeks... I will probably get to the post office but not that often!!

Cheers
Cushla
Simply want to say I'm thinking of you as you attend your God mother's service. I know this is such a difficult time. Hugs and prayers are sent your way.
Genny, I missed the second hot review but will look for it. My May is not a grayhound; in fact, she's quite stocky in the rear, but she's very black and sleek and pointed in the face.
I love your pictures of your mother with Pam, who does look like a warm, wonderful woman.
Peace,
Peggy
How are you doing with your grief process?
Wow, that was quick - I only sent it yesterday! Hope you enjoy it.
Janet
Hi There
Congratulations on another hot review!
Thinking of you and sending hugs. I hope wonderful memories of your special God mother will sustain you through the heartache of losing her.

Also, congratulations on your hot review listed on today's home page.
I'm simply stopping by to say how glad I am that you are a member of the 75 challenge group!

Thanks for your frequent, and kind posts on my thread!

Linda
I'm always on the lookout for new authors but, currently writing author favorites include Carolyn Hart, Hazel Holt, Laura Childs, Monica Ferris, and Joanne Fluke.

How about you?

I also have a 1010 Food Mysteries category. Last year, in 999, I included a "Vintage Mysteries" as I love to read older mysteries as well. I've read most of Agatha Christie (and just discovered a stash of about 10 Christie books I hadn't read in my basement) and also Rex Stout. Patricia Moyes was also a favorite.

I've also got a 1010 bonus category: next in the series and could work in a few there.

Before LT, probably 75 percent of my reading involved mysteries but I am branching out to other areas I've loved but had not read much.
That's terrific that you've read all the Allingham mysteries. I've read a few of them myself and ought to do the same.
I didn't read your profile carefully enough. I have had a little Koine Greek too and a first major in Bible and Religion. Add books! Add books!
Genny, I had to come see what a language lover reads! ----- a lot of my stuff!
Hi Genny
Congratulations on your hot review listed on today's home page! I'm very glad you joined our 75 challenge group. I enjoy your posts and learning of your reading habits.

Sincerely,
Linda
Hi Genny,

Congratulations on winning the "Selene of Alexandria" ebook give away! I've emailed the files to you and look forward to reading your review. If you have any problem with the files, please let me know.

Read and enjoy!

Faith
Thanks - and thanks for the compliment of adding my library. :)

I'll be interested to see what you add to your library, even if you only have time to add a few now and then.

I don't have a particular focus for my degree yet; I'm just starting some stuff on the developing theology of the Virgin Mary in the middle ages. It's fascinating, but so far it's mostly periodical articles rather than books so it's not appearing in my library. Also up to my ears with a project on in Wesley's theology as part of my local preacher's CPD.

Happy Easter!
Hi Genny

Great review for The Stolen Lake. I recently purchased this from my local library sale table -- grand price .10.

I see you, like me, are a member of the 75 challenge group. Please send your link to me so that I can find your thread. Our group has grown quickly.

Linda
Hi Genny, I found it fascinating learning about your degree in 'medieval manuscripts.' I'm just curious what was the focus. Was it interpretation? What languages did you cover or had to learn, decipher?
With the advent of electronic books and all of that, I can see someone like you 400-500 years hence getting a degree in '20th century books'. What would that cover?
