About meLondoner, ex South African,ex-Magistrate, now living in Beijing. Wife, mother,grandmother,blog writer, keen cruciverbalist,dog lover. After finding this site through my other little hobby - Bookcrossing - I decided it was time to release my inner librarian. I pour a mean G&T!

Actually, I'll read practically anything that has been published, I'm not a picky reader and I love the serendipity of finding new authors or subjects to read.
