About meForty-something mum of two and obsessive reader, two facts which explain why my house is always a mess. I'm also on (whisper it) Goodreads. Wish I had found this site earlier - I'm fascinated by the statistical stuff, which members have read the same stuff as me, and what they thought about it.

About my libraryIn 2003 I set myself the target of reading all the adult novels in the BBC Big Read, a feat that took me 4 years to complete. This introduced me to a wide range of genres and books I would never otherwise have tried. Often the books I thought I would hate were the ones I enjoyed the most. Mainly I like books that make me laugh, cry or think. Hopeless at interpreting symbolism or anything deep and meaningful but always prepared to try. The best thing about sites like this is there's always a reviewer who can point out what I missed!
