About meI'm a librarian in Oxford of mature years. I have eclectic reading tastes; basically,I'll give anything a go (won't promise to finish it though). I have far too many books of my own &, combined with a love of charity shop (thrift shop) browsing & generous friends who are always lending me "must reads" have a TBR pile which can probably be seen from space!
I have a very new Blog which I'm rather proud of (not being a child of the cyber-age) which you can view over at
I'm very bad at updating my LibraryThing account so I'm not the incredibly slow reader I may appear!!

About my libraryWay too many books on every subject under the sun & growing!
