About meBritish cat-loving, bookaholic programmer.

I'm the one in the middle in the photo. (Kiki is the one with a beak, Little Miss Tilly Twinkletoes has the fur.)

I will have you know that my Unitarian Jihad Name is: Sister Honorable Machine Gun of Courteous Contemplation. What's yours?

About my librarySomeone asked me about the range of books in my library - here's my explanation:

I work as a programmer (IT books); I like to eat (cookery books); sometimes I think about the future (philosophy and science fiction); I like some light relief (crime, adventure and romance).

Favourite authors
Favourite author = I want to acquire all their work.

View styles
PaulFoley provided a great mnemonic for viewing styles, which I have adopted for my library:

A = author, B = "base" (my normal view), C = comments, D = dates, and E = "extra stuff"

GroupsAdventure Classics, Almack's, Books that made me think, Brits, Can you recommend....., Cats, books, life is good., Chertsey Bookclub, Cookbookers, Explain this to me, please..., Feminist SFshow all groups
