I notice that we share a lot of interests in common, especially Dickens and Victorian literature. Your collection of Dickensiana is very impressive, and I am intrigued by several of your recent additions, notably the Forster biography and the miscellaneous papers.
Nice picture of your library too!
Hello, I'd like to invite you to check out LibraryThing Local Hong Kong. I've posted a number of bookstore, library and event venues and would love for more local members to add their favourite book-related spaces or upcoming events. Any favourites you'd like to add or comment on? Regards, Christine.
The Beautiful Plants of Seychelles

Looked up this book on - a single copy available at $178! Looking at the books we share it seems surprising that most of it is literature. I will look up some of your plant exploration titles - just hope that they do not come with the same extravagant price tags!

Gosh, I wish my covers were as up to date as yours! We have a respectable number of titles in common, but obviously I was looking for your books on plants and gardens. Have you seen the little government booklets that I have on Hong Kong trees?
