About meI'm a lifelong big reader who's also a librarian (surprise surprise!) currently working at the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers. I knew nothing about mining when I started in July 06 but I am learning fast! I am very lucky in that I work next door to the amazing Lit and Phil library - a members library with a huge amount and variety of fiction especially. I'm a Carnegie/Greenaway judge currently so all my eligible reading has been saved as "private" due to social media restrictions.

About my libraryThe majority of what I read is children's books, also crime and various non-fiction subjects like scrapbooking and books for my librarianship course. I also tag books by where I borrowed them from (so Lit and Phil is a major tag in my library) and subjects where I can.
