About meI live in Surrey with my daughter, a black cat called Friday and two Bassett Hounds called Alice and Percy. I work as an Admin Manager and in my spare time (when not reading) I love long walks in the countryside with my dogs. The picture is of my old boy Billy who crossed the rainbow bridge on 21st December 2018, 2 months short of his 19th birthday and i still miss him very very much.

About my libraryI have varied tastes and will read more or less anything. I enjoy non-fiction as much as fiction. My librarything consists of books I own.
