About meI'm a librarian who was a bookseller in my previous career. I love to read and devour a lot of books. Since I've stared keeping track, I have read between 60 and 130 books in a year.
About my libraryIan McEwan summed up my reading preferences beautifully in his novel Sweet Tooth (edited to the present tense): "My needs are simple. I don't bother much with theme or felicitous phrases and skip fine descriptions of weather, landscapes and interiors. I want characters I can believe in, and I want to be made curious about what is to happen to them." Or in my own words, I like books where interesting stuff happens to interesting people.
