About meCurrently working in a West sussex public library.

Some of my reviews are just links to reviews written long ago using my ciao account (now defunct). Apologies for the typo's.

About my library'Books...are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves with 'em, then we grow out of 'em and leave 'em behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development.'

An X tag indicates a book waiting to be checked, a c shows that the cover sin't my cover (so to speak). My library doesn't have this many duplicates but checking is a laborious process and impossible whilst I'm in Loughborough.

The obvious interests are gothic fiction, which I figure is a very broad term, libraries which I adore, books which I worship, and anything I've found interesting. As a whole the library tends to hang together but taken as individual items it might look a bit of a mish-mash. The heavy english lit element can be blamed on doing English for a degree - although lots of it I'd have got round to owning eventually.

pretty awesome list
Hey, I see I'm on your interesting libraries list and when I've gone to check your library out I realise that I know weird! It's Cheryl from Loughobrough Uni last year.
How you enjoying life as a public librarian? I'm loving it, though not loving the chartership process so much... it's possibly even more tedious than writing my disseration.
Hope things are well with you
Durham Cathedral by Greenwell is one of the books we share. Pls see my note about it. Since you also have a copy, I'll continue my observation. Inside, I found a corner of a light blue paper, fairly thick, with faint rule lines on one side, containing, in a lovely hand, these words, " if this one fits allr...on for travelling neatly as you can...back in the box, what you just pack...". On the other side: "66 Kepier Crescent, Gilesgate Moor, Durham, 12/7/37". Inside the front cover, the book was given to B.Francis by John Kain.
I wanted to share that with you. Such a little surprise in an old book pleases me very much.
I do hope that your employment situation is resolved to your satisfaction. I am unable to go to the same lengths as you, but am volunteering in my daughter's high school (grades 9-12). An MLS works there, with a part-time Library Technician( having recently completed a two-year diploma course at college), who comes two days per week.
I have chosen to do the physical inventory of the 12,000 volume library, which has not been done in 12 years. I have about a quarter to go before the end of the school year. As a volunteer, I get to take my time, and read to my heart's content. I would like to make this a bit more profitable, but the local school boards are rather unaware of librarians' needs.
Happy reading!
