About mePlease note that I do NOT take bookings for Banstead Community Hall -- people keep asking. You need Joanne Smith 01737 360568,

I've lived all my life to the South of London and been reading since 1938. I blame Enid Blyton & her Sunny stories. Now in my eighties I have rarely disposed of a book in my life and my current shed/computer room/CD store now contains over 4000 books.It drives my wife mad! When not reading, surfing or listening to all kinds of music - Mozart to Morton (Jelly Roll) I have just ceased after 15 years to edit a newsletter for our local branch of University of the Third Age. Now it's just the database and email circulation.

About my libraryA succession of enthusiasms through my life has left me with a collection of books on each topic. Somehow I have a metre of shelf on the I Ching and related, 12ft of poetry, and a foot of Richard Feynman
The actual number of books on my shelves remains fairly constant as these days I don't keep every book. For a true number deduct the figures for tags Read&Gone and LTS, which stands for "Life too short"!
