About me2021 Update: I moved to using Goodreads for some reason, but am thinking about moving back here. Since I was last here I have moved into a house of my very own (or the bank's) and so have bookshelves. Full bookshelves.

Like many here, I like to read ;) but most of my books are still in my parents house. The joys of renting an apartment! I'm a librarian in the public sector, working in Library Headquarters

About my library2021 Update: I'm going to add all read books here from now on. I'll have a not owned & an owned collection. Have to wait and see about other changes

Added in dribs and drabs as I don't have all my books on hand. I'm only adding books I actually own, so if you want to read any more of my reviews you'll have to look at my book blog:

Tagwise, dvd means, as you'd think, a dvd. Everything else is pretty straight-forward, although I tend to use sff as a catch all for sci-fi and fantasy. And that includes speculative fiction.

The only other tag that I think needs explaining is the 'verse one. This I use for books that share a setting, but aren't necessarily a series. From my POV a series is one in which the story continues and you need to read each book in order. Whereas a 'verse may share characters and so your experience may benefit from reading them all, but you don't have to.
