About My Library
My list consists of books owned, my family and myself, read or unread as well as anything I have read, that I can remember, from the age of about 15.

My list has many titles that I remember from decades past but I can only remember reading, not what they are about.The list is complete over the past 5 years. I love keeping lists and its part of my hobby to list things. I've been perusing other people's lists to coax my memory and have found books that I had forgotten reading entirely.
My reading tastes vary from serious modern literature to trashy pulp read in the 70's and 80's although I tend to read a better class of books these days. I have also not hidden anything that I have on my shelves.

I have not listed anything read as a child, may do that oneday, but I was an avid Enid Blyton reader.
