About meAfter too many years of not finding or making time I now make much more time for reading.
I enjoy books that take me to a different time or place but always in the real world - no science fiction or fantasy.
Occasionally I like some light relief with fast plotted mysteries and I have a soft spot for the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency books because their gentle wisdom makes me smile and the pace of life in the books helps me to relax.

About my libraryI pick most of my books up from charity shops so I can afford to be quite adventurous. Prize winners often catch my eye but I don't always enjoy them and if I haven't they won't be listed here. I've always got lots to read (I haven't put any of the books in my to be read piles here!).
I find books faster than I read them and I never get round to re-reading - but I always hang onto my favourites just in case. Please supply recommendations - I may have it waiting in the pile and can bring it to the top!
