- About My Library
- I love buying books, although I am starting to use my local public library again, as I don't have any space for any more books at the moment! I read a mixture of authors and genres, I love a good 'intelligent' author/book, but I also enjoy a good mass-market thriller. I also read alot of teen-fiction, as there is some great stuff out there that suits adults as well as teens. There are so many other books I have read that I can't remember, or I can only remember the cover, so I'm sure there's many more to add. I like most genres, although I have to admit I'm not a chick-lit or family saga type of girl!
- About Me
- I have always read since I was a child, although during my teen years I neglected books in favour of music, clothes, shopping and boys! I started reading seriously again after my A-Levels and went to univeristy in Liverpool to read for a degree in American Studies with English Literature, therefore reading many authors I'd never heard of, others I had, and some that I really should have read! After a number of jobs I finally settled on a career in library work, completed the relevant MA qualification, and spent just over three and a half years working in an academic library in Cumbria. I now work for a book selection company, so I spend all day choosing the books that go into public libraries! I choose the adult fiction books for a number of counties in the UK, so I now have a veritable knowledge of all the great books that are coming out - so I can have first dibs in my local library, or buy them from our lovely showroom (with the much appreciated staff discount of course!). I enjoy being able to find out about authors who are up and coming, and can also look for books that suit my reading style.
