About meBibliophile - like to organise things. Tags are good! Love fountain pens with purple ink and moleskine notebooks. Think LT is the cyber version of my Moleskines. I did two years of an English degree before the science bit but found it took the joy out of reading (and that was just unacceptable!)

If you have a question about or a problem with any combination work I've done, please feel free to leave me a comment. No offense will be taken. Same goes for any incorrect entries in my library - I'd rather know if there's a wrong author attributed to something (for the same reason all my books have to be lined up in a special order on my shelves at home ....)

I blog on things bookish, sciencey and runningesque at The Reading Gene (

About my libraryReally eclectic - I read what I like, not what looks cool. Most books (with a few really bad notable exceptions) I can't bear to part with once I'm done, although I'm having to limit myself to keeping ones I'll read again due to space (as you can see, that's working well ....). I have Guilty Pleasures and Shelves of Shame and I'm proud of them! Books have to be enjoyable - well written, good story, significant, make you think, help you switch off ... one or all of the above! I give most things a chance, always finish books and then get really cross about the time spent on the bad ones. There's little excuse in life for bad writing! I'm still cataloguing my books here but pretty much everything here I own (unless I've tagged it as 'No Longer in Library' or 'Library Book').
