About My Library
Random. Eclectic. Historical fiction and biographies, modern-day 'pulp fiction', anything with a pretty cover. If an author's style or characters appeal to me, I will latch onto them and read their whole back catalogue, from Baroness Orczy to Rex Stout. I have a growing 'To Read' list, but still keep returning to treasured favourites, because I view books as escapism not a checklist. I derive immense satisfaction from buying spanking new copies of books, even if I know it will be a while before I can get to read any new additions.

Favourite books include:

Emma by Jane Austen
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Tagging books read this year with '2022', merely to keep an accurate tally of the number I get through (also indicating library books and other sources as 'read but unowned').
About Me
Former library assistant, lifelong bibliophile. I read as a frustrated amateur writer, inspired by characters in biographies and fiction, and building my store of trivial knowledge through non-fiction.
