About meI'm a librarian with a systems / IT background living and working in London.

In the cartoon I am holding the logo of Vim, the best text editor.

About my libraryI've reined in the book buying over the last few years and now mainly read borrowed books. I add these to LT following a suggestion on Karen Schneider's blog (tags: library book, borrowed). This is for LibraryThing's recommendations, which are excellent in themselves but also an interesting approach to serendipitous discovery.
