About meage 52, I've just given up work. I love reading, patchwork ,genealogy and my 5 cats.

About my libraryLove the classics; am working my way through Balzac's Comedie Humaine.
Also adore Virago Classics. (And have just discovered Persephone Books...bliss!) My guilty pleasure is historical fiction, notably Jean Plaidy.
