About meI'm an ILT Officer at York College. I'm a Chartered Librarian by trade and have worked in FE for 25 years. Reading is a fairly rare treat for me, mostly when on holiday. I hadn't read a book for years until we went to Portugal in 2007 and I read three novels. A week in Menorca last year allowed me to read another three. I have bought quite a few novels recently and the reading bug is grabbing me again.I read a lot of magazines each month to do with my interests so getting into a novel is not something I do regularly but I do like it when given the chance.

About my libraryI like thrillers Frederick Forsyth and John Harris are my sort of thing. I have read all the JP Donleavy novels which I really like and have enjoyed D.H Lawrence of the more classic authors.
