About mePicture of me as a baby with my brother - say Aahh! Now I am married and have two children - a girl and a boy. I have been a keen reader all my life but not an especially erudite one. I like to try blockbusters, classics, prize winners (except the booker prize winner which seems to guarentee I will hate it) and anything in the charity shop on a whim. I particularly like books that cover childhood and children. I also like children's literature.

About my libraryI started trying to catalogue everything I read from May 2008, give it a star rating and a comment. I have now become much more ambitious. I want to record every book I have read in my lfe. I will include the lot - the diet books, the self-help crazes, the teach-yourself short-hand/website design/Arabic - as a kind of diary of my enthusiasms and feelings at the time. Sometimes I cannot remember the book very clearly but so-be-it. Sometimes it jogs other memories - therapy my dears. So when I see someone has added a book that I have read I pop it into my library.

I will try to develop reviews under my specialism - books on childhood and adoption. Otherwise, I will only review when there are few people who have or I think I have something wonderful to say (which is often!). I would like to make contact with other book-lovers so please leave a comment.
