About meI live in a houseful of books with one lovely man, one adorable baby girl and two crazy cats. I work for a major bookselling chain. I love labyrinths, WoW, lie-ins, cross-stitching, reading new books, red sneakers, motorsport and spending time with my man and my daughter. I'd love to go to Paris, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Despite everything (or maybe because of it), I still believe in Happily-Ever-After.

About my libraryI read less than I used to but still at least two books a week. I collect old children's books and DiscWorld books. I mostly read fantasy, children's, crime, romance (not Mills and Boon type crap), thrillers, mysteries and basically anything that I like the look of. I have a lot of books that won't register on here as they're proof copies. One day I may add them manually...

*waves madly* HELLO!
Hello there! Just wanted to drop by and say thanks for the "Interesting Libraries" add. :) Not sure if you want to go through the effort, but I found that it was easier for me to catalog proofs by adding the ISBNd version and then just tweaking the information accordingly - deleting the ISBN and adding "Advanced Reading Copy" to my tags. Still, I've only got 20 or so, and I imagine as an employee for a major bookselling chain you've got quite a few more than I do. LOL!
G'day, I see that Twin Freaks by Paul Magrs crossed your crowded desk. Cool book, don't you think? When was the last time you read a book by a golden-throated dwarf with a penchant for travel arrangement? Yes, I thought so. Paul Magrs is a bit of a mystery man, so nice to know that he has other readers.
Hi there fellow Arthur Ransome fan. There are a few of us across the pond who love him also.

Hi there, how nice to find someone else who is into children's books, and very local to me as well. I suspect we share a lot of other books, but I've only logged those I've actually read since I joined the site. I love the Chalet School Books and I see you've got some of the Ransome there. When I learnt to sail I believed I already knew how because of those books and do you know, I was right!
Hello! I knew there were other booksellers out here somewhere, it's great to finally meet another!
Cool! Glad it was helpful!
You have two Chalet School books in your library that are listed as being by Enid Blyton instead of by Elinor M. Brent Dyer. Looks like Amazon has been giving you bad data.
