About My Library
I worked for HarperCollins Publishers in Bishopbriggs for three years straight out of uni. They had a bookshop on-site that sold returned books from bookshops for as little as 25p. Cue impending bookshelf inadequacy. In short order my bedroom was stacked high with books, some of which I planned to read during my retirement. For example: I managed to collect almost the entire works of Agatha Christie. I've read one of them.
The last year has seen a merciless cull and a sudden, unexplained influx of detective fiction and sci-fi in several local charity shops. And that was before I discovered BookMooch!
I now have a much more manageable collection but I still have doubts about whether I'll have read Asimov's Foundation Saga before I'm pensioned off.
