About meMy name is Stephen and I am a BOOKAHOLIC!!! Have way too many books but am addicted to browsing in charity/book shops and the internet. Think I would like to have already read my books rather than actually having to sit down and read the ba****ds!!!! I will have to spend all my spare time reading and have to live to be about 150 years old to get anywhere near finishing them all. So only 106 years to go.

About my libraryMassive, ridiculous, mainly fiction.

Steve - happy christmas and a prosperous and peaceful new year mate. Hope we continue to second guess each other in our respective book collections next year.
Steve I've a feeling we'll all be waving leeks and daffodils in celebration of Wales getting revenge over South Africa in the final - suddenly developed a sneaking suspicion that NZ will blow it against them without Carter to kick them to victory. The welsh play the game properly so I wish them all the best.
Waited a few days before replying for obvious reasons. Bad luck in a close game at the weekend. Don't feel that England are really set up to challenge strongly for the WC this time; the pack is not so dominating and Martin Johnson doesn't seem to know what midfield combination to go with. Armitage will be missed against France and Flood would appear a better bet than a flagging Wilkinson. Ireland and Wales have done the "home nations" proud however and I can see the Welsh running a Carter less New Zealand close in the final!
Stephen sent you a friend request mainly on the basis that we share a simply incredible 1043 books. I don't know if it is case of great minds thinking alike or having spent a similarly dissolute youth reading good books instead of concentrating upon the commerce of life. Being from Hawick are you a rugby man - I used to play scrum-half many moons ago for my county (West Yorks) mainly because I was lighting over 40 yards but pitiful over 45!

We share the same last name, but I doubt we have the same lineage except for the bookaholic gene. Just wanted to say hello and let you know there was at least one other Henderson bookaholic in the world, that is Chicago in my case.

Hi- you have some interesting books listed- i'm sure I'll find something new to read if I look through your books! Is 'The Eyre Affair' good? I had it recommended by Librarything but its confidence level in the recommendation was very low, so I'm not sure what to think!
