About meI'm 40+, going on 15, but I'm responsible for two little boys, who absolutely turn my world upside down (sometimes, unfortunately, literally). They seem to think I'm their age, so we have lots of fun together.
About my libraryWhen I was still at school, I fell in love with certain of the books I borrowed from the library, and decided to buy my own copies. If it was a series, since I couldn't afford to buy the whole series (which, in those days, were usually trilogies, or occasionally duologies), I would get the last book in a series - you might notice I've only got book 3 of some of the earlier published books, and, unfortunately, most of those series are now out of print. Once I started earning, of course, I could buy them all, so now, I try to get the whole series, if I like it (or, sometimes, just to complete the collection, even if I'm not that enamoured of the books). I try to get all the books in a series from the same publisher, and in the same binding, because I like my shelves to look neat (and I'm a bit pedantic that way!). I like to buy my books brand new, so they are pristine when I first open the cover with much anticipation for my next adventure. (And, if you haven't guessed, I'm a fantasy fan)
