About my libraryA library of every book that I know/remember that I've read. I've tagged books from school and university with "GCSE books", "A-level books", "BA books" and "MA books". I'm now going through tagging with a year too ("Read in 2013", "Read in 2012", etc.).

At the beginning of 2014, I created a collection here called "To Read in 2014". The idea is to read these books, mainly ones that have sat on my shelf for a long while, before buying anything else. It's hard and I've already bought two new books....
