About meRetired - so plenty of time to read.

About my libraryThe picture is of my mother Pat Brown (1932-2012) in her bookshop, 'Book Box' in Stow-on-the Wold, Glos, probably around 2005. Pat was always happiest in her book shop - which she sold in 2011 due to ill health.

In my book you only get one life, so this is the collection that suits until the joker deals. I'd like to reduce the number of books over the next few years (and now achieved - making a bookseller very happy), but still at least three years reading languishes.

The collection divides into five areas: Music, Russian lit. & crit. in translation, London history & topography, art history, and the rest.

When the reading is almost done I'll pick up my begging bowl and disappear into the forest with three books: a favourite, one partially read, and another that is unexplored.
