About meMore often than not, there's a book in my handbag. I've been an avid reader ever since I learnt to read, libraries were my favourite places when I was growing up and these days I love nothing more than browsing books in a bookshop.
About my libraryMy library is a list of books on my bookshelf (dictionaries have not been listed yet), so there's a bit of everything there. mari_reads is my reading catalogue, listing books I have read since 1994.
