About My Library
My library only shows books that are actually currently on my bookshelves (well, to be truthful, some are in piles waiting to go on a bookshelf...), perhaps I should have said - books that I physically own. I also show the cover for the specific edition that I own. For the very occasional e-book (which I have included only when that is the only edition available) I show the art-work for that e-book (or an image with a link to the web-address) rather than an image of the paper edition. I do not show the books that I used to own - as I decided that they did not hold enough interest for me to keep them, nor do I show my 'wish list' which sits in my head until I enter a bookshop - preferably a second hand bookshop, and if I am lucky... Every now and again I try and permanently remove some books to make space for new ones but usually end up getting a new book shelf (which means working out where another book shelf can actually fit in the house). Whilst there may be some books that have not yet been read, in general if a book is in the library it has been read.
About Me
I simply enjoy reading. Where I like an author I tend to read all the works written by that author. I particularly enjoy reading crime fiction and twentieth century british female authors. As well as reading, my other interests can be determined from my books - cooking, knitting and gardening - but I also enjoy listening to and playing music (I have not yet felt the need to put my music (neither sheet nor CD) into librarything...). And then there are the two cats (grown up versions of the one in the picture). I also enjoy spending time in bookshops - just looking for that odd book or three, which may have something to do with the increasing size of my library...
