About meEx librarian, ex computer programmer & support person, ex science fiction fan, Currently working at home as the office manager of a small legal costing practice. Owner of cavalier king charles spaniels.

About my libraryHave been accumulating books for over 40 years - science fiction & fantasy, computing, history, historical fiction ... I'm also cataloguing my wife's books, because after 30 years it's kind of hard to work out whose is whose - except for the cookery books, that is.

"Your Library" contains books that we own. Since we live in a fairly small house I've had a fairly rigorous weeding policy over the years, so books get thrown out in numbers that fairly closely match those that are acquired. I have a "Withdrawn" collection for the ones discarded.

17th January, 2010: We've made it into the top 5,000 libraries club! (1,414 books - 12 shelves worth to go).
