About meTechnical writer and writer-writer. Likes to read children's books and call it 'research'.

About my libraryPatchy, but trying. Mostly genre or period lit, children's books and nonfiction. Specific interests include Imagism, haiku, the 18th century, Puffins, medieval studies and Arthuriana.

'Your Library' has the books physically in my home. 'Read but Unowned' lists borrowed books and discards. For space reasons, I'm trying to be more stringent in what I keep, buy less and use the public library more.

The catalogue doesn't include my TBR pile. As an incentive not to leave them lying for too many decades, I add books as I read them.
