About meHi,my username is dustydigger because I am the person in the corner of a dusty bookshop rooting through tantalizing old tatty books looking for hidden gems.I am over 60 and have been an avid reader all my life.One of my earliest memories is receiving Beatrix Potter's Tale of Mr.Jeremy Fisher for my 4th birthday. I couldnt join the public library till I was seven,and I joined on my birthday and have been a staunch library goer ever since.Only allowed 2 books at a time,I took out C.S.Lewis Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the Magician's Nephew and never looked back.No wonder I decided on librarianship as my college course.I still get through 3 or 4 books a week and love reading as much as ever.I admit to being a listoholic,never happier than preparing massive lists of books I want to read!I look to on-site friends for many recommendations,and always have a HUGE TBR as a result!

About my libraryAlthough I am quite an eclectic reader,I read mostly crime,science fiction,and urban fantasy with a soft spot for classic children's literature.I avoid war books,most chick lit and erotica,and am not keen on historical fiction or massive fantasy wristbreaking tomes. I am so busy looking out older genre classics that I am hopelessly far behind the trending books or bestsellers!
