About meI love books, music, films, art, knitting and writing. My stamping ground is a cross between a library, art gallery and a big mess. I hope someday to publish the sort of lyrical poems and light-hearted tunes that are the tid-bits in my diaries. Who knows?

About my libraryEverything. I need escapism. I love knowledge. I love finding topics that make me exclaim in jubilation upon their discovery. It's what books are for - I love how there are ways for every mood + every occasion, hopefully there will always be something for everyone.

---note: unless you are addressing me in a private message, after an email or two, or I said it was fine to call me by name - I rather think it's rude to be that direct. Much rather receive a press release in the post, sometimes. Bear in the mind that your note will be read by whoever. I mostly keep the ones with some worth in, and archive or privatise certain ones.

I'm slowly adding the BCIDs of books I have passed on with BookCrossing. Very slowly.

Check out my "for sale or trade" tag. It's what it says on the tin. Let me know if you want anything.
