About meI live in Melbourne, where I work in internal communications for a global company. My 27 year-old daughter, Lucy, has just returned to the fold after a couple of years in London, and I also have three dependent dogs to keep amused. My husband is currently working in Sydney but we get together for weekends quite often. Although I have never made the target, I am a keen member of the 75 Books Challenge and recommend anyone to join this lively and engaging group. Beware though, your book-buying will increase dramatically!

About my libraryThis is probably my third or fourth library - with other collections culled or left behind in moves between countries, between relationships and between my mother's mania for not holding on to anything. If cookbooks are your thing, you might be interested in visiting my separate Cookbook collection.

Here is my current thread on the 75 Book challenge for 2014:
