About meI'm a librarian in the public library system. I've always loved books and reading and have bookcases that are groaning under the weight of my books.

About my libraryMy library is mostly fiction. I love to read Australian authors and also have a large collection of young adult novels (mostly Australian).
Some favourite authors (amongst many) are:
Tim Winton
Isabel Allende
Paulo Coelho
JM Coetzee
Sonya Hartnett
Andrew McGahan
Peter Goldsworthy
. . . after a few years, it is quite obvious that my tastes are changing. I would now have to add authors like . .
Margaret Atwood
Joyce Carol Oates
Roddy Doyle
Ian McEwan

and many others too!

That cat is just way too comfy. I am jealous.
Hi - I've just noticed that you rated The Blue Book with a half star. I picked this up at the library the other day and put it back as I am trying to focus on my tbr pile. Now I'm glad I did!
Hi, I've pulled out a Roddy Doyle from my home library, Paddy Clarke, I see Doyle is a favourite of yours. I'm really enjoying it. Have you read it? It's my first Doyle but I'm finding that I am really enjoying Irish fiction, I've read quite a few over the last 12 months.
Don't mind at all. I notice that you follow anzlitlovers, I follow Lisa's blog, I find a lot of good recommendations from Lisa.
