About meI'm a middle-aged guy with a drone-like desk job. I love to read and to own books. I can sometimes be a rather uncritical reader; it is the reading that gives the pleasure, not necessarily the book.

About my libraryHave been collecting books since I was 16 and joined the Literary Guild book club here in the UK. I downsized a few years ago and had to get rid of most of my library, so everything on Librarything I acquired in the last 5 years or so.

I like history, biography, historical fiction and crime fiction, but will read pretty much anything if it appeals.

Hi Andrez,

wanted to tell you I very much enjoyed your review of Bertie: A Life of Edward VII. I'm just finishing up the first part of the Churchill biography, The Last Lion, and will likely follow up with this one as would seem rather appropriate somehow.

All the best,

Ilana
Just read your review of the Beekeeper's Apprentice after buying it because it was recommended by a good friend of mine. Found the review quite informative, though was wondering if you were aware that the idea of Holmes and Watson being historical figures is not simply King's idea, but a game played by most people who are seriously interested in the Holmes stories?
