About meSince I could read I've never been without a book on the go and reading novels and travel books is a big part of what I do. I am part of a book group in the North West of England, which constantly encourages me to widen my reading. We have a campervan and you can read about our trips at: I also write about memorial benches at

About my libraryI always have itchy feet and want to travel and books are an affordable way to do this. I make an effort to read novels and travel books from different countries around the world and hope to read at least one book about each country in the world before I die. I am using the UN list of recognised countries (total 197 countries).
I use Library Thing to keep a record of what I have read and what I have yet to read. I have recently updated my books, so everything I have read since 1992 is now in my library. We live in a small house don't have much room to keep lots of books and we try and ensure the clutter never gets too much. Library Thing is one way to retain a book shelf, even if it is virtual.
