About meOnce started a Masters in the 18th century novel (didn't finish, work got in the way); very interested in literature for older children and young adults. Susceptible to first editions but really can't afford them.
Other obsessions: my dogs, gardening, historical dance, folklore of the British Isles.

About my libraryEclectic and escapist; lots of fantasy and science fiction, Gothic novels, Jane Austen, the much under-rated Georgette Heyer, Canadian literature, crime fiction of the 1920s to 1970s. Children's literature and early 20th century writing (especially by women). I'm cataloguing the library by room, and it's going pretty slowly, but it means I don't have to make a decision yet about whether to include my husband's books.

I also have an occasional blog about children's literature at:
