About meFor the past few years I have been reading relatively unknown (well, at least to me!) “Golden Age” mystery authors. After consulting a few reference books on the subject I realise I have many more years of great reading ahead.

About my libraryMy catalogue consists of books I actually own, and I only keep those that have some sentimental value or that I intend to read again. (I keep all the e-books I purchase - they don't need dusting.) Only books that I have read since March 2007 are rated.
