About meI’m a retired British civil servant. Apart from books, my main interests are beer, baroque and classical music, and watching England lose at cricket.

About my libraryIt’s a motley collection, brought together over fifty years or so. The main areas, apart from fiction, are biography, social history, music, languages and reference books. There’s a certain amount of dross, because I find it hard to throw a book away, even if I know I’ll never want to read it again.
