About meI work at a publishers in London. Unfortunately, being surrounded by books all day doesn't prevent me from buying more.

About my libraryMy library is full of all sorts - classics, history, biography, science, fantasy, science fiction, romance, crime, sport... You name it, I probably have something, somewhere, about it. I've got far too many unread books, and have been trying to work through them, but it's difficult when bookshops are filled with so many others and there's always something new to read.

I studied history of science as a postgraduate, so have quite a few titles related to that topic area (particularly the history of maths/physics, not so much biology/chemistry). Most of my fiction reading is fantasy, romance or historical, or a combination of all three. I try to balance this by reading a lot of non-fiction too - particularly on the commute when you're judged by the book you have in your hands! I guess this is why e-readers are so useful...
