About meI live in Oxfordshire, which was not my choice but I've got used to it. In theory, I work - if only peripherally these days - in the book trade, but am currently on long-term sick leave with peritoneal cancer. I read a lot, have three cats, and far too much time on my hands - but way too few days left to me.
About my libraryDivided into fiction (A format), fiction (B format) - you can fit more on the shelves that way - fiction (trade paperback, hardback, other), children's fiction (lives in the bedroom), and non-fiction (assorted topics, shapes and sizes). Strict alphabetical order within these divisions, which means, among other things, that Elizabeth Gaskell is an uneasy bedfellow to some rather bad fantasies with Boris Vallejo covers that I read in the 70s when there wasn't much in the way of choice.
