About meI grew up surrounded by readers so it was inevitable that I would learn to read at a young age - my primary school teacher was not impressed and told my mother that she had 'impinged on my creativity!

I read across the genres, some might say indiscriminately but have a particular love for the novels of the nineteenth century, especially Wilkie Collins, Trollope and Thackeray, and nothing can beat a good twentieth century murder mystery.

I think I may be an ex-bookcrosser, but if you see a BX tag this book is also registered on Bookcrossing.

I also seem to have acquired an English Masters, which is a relief.

About my libraryGrowing...

I have a second LT account, which is private - riverwillow2 - which I'm using for my wishlist books.

Here is a quick clarification of how some of my Collections are comprised.

"Your Library" means all books owned by me and physically in my home or on loan to friends and family

"On Loan" refers to books owned by me, in my library, and loaned out to friends and family.

"Borrowed" refers to books I've borrowed which are still with me.

"Bookcrossing" relates to books registered on, some of which may have been released.

All other collections should do what they say on the tin!
