About My Library
I have a library that reflects a multitude of passions.Women's Fiction past and present features heavily as does Literary Criticism. However a subject only needs to grab my attention and I will pursue it through the books I read.
If I had to choose favourite authors it would be most of the 19th century writers but especially George Eliot, into the 20th century with Penelope Fitzgerald and Margaret Atwood and on the poetry shelves Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes and Emily Dickinson.
About Me
A bookaholic of the highest order with an addiction that has been lifelong.
I work part time as a Health Visitor and the rest of the time indulge my passion for reading and some writing. Check out my blog at http://dovegreyreader.typepad.com now being archived for the nation by The British Library!!!!!
(seriously, it is, yes I thought it was a wind up too)
