About meI love reading as a pastime and as a necessity to my being. My favorite authors were I forced to choose, would be Austen, the Bront√ęs and Dickens. Whenever I chance upon extra money I spend it (and more!) on a fine Folio edition of some title of which I probably own three copies already. One could say that I live to read and spend money on books that I might not.

About my libraryIt's a smattering of age, quality, condition and genre, but I love it and would rather my car get stolen than any one book.

Shakespeare's Planet is a great book.

It's really nice of you to say so, and you are the only one who has! I have to admit that the collection is a joint one - and I'm devastated to realise, now that I've actually finished adding them - and physically moved all of them to do it, how many I haven't read. But the Austen is mine - and the scf-fi and fantasy. The chocolate book by sandra boynton is certainly mine!
I have to confess, though, that i really hate Dickens.........a large black cloud of depression settles on my shoulders about three pages in and I just can't go on.
My favourite author, were I forced to choose would be William Gibson, Neil Gaiman and probably Bruce Chatwin....but it is so hard to choose.
