About meI cannot get enough of books. Besides the fact that I love to read them, I also collect them and treasure them. I buy them faster than I can read them.

In the year 2019 I discovered the artful covers of UK editions. I have a few books both, US and UK editions in my collection listed in my library as duplicates. .
