About My Library
I don't have one particular favourite genre, though historical fiction and fantasy titles dominate, and I'm happy to consider each author and genre on their own merits. And while I love all the books on my shelves, titles in book or charity shops (or the library) often look too tempting not to buy (or borrow), so my TBR pile is in serious danger of getting out of control. Still: one can never have too many books.
About Me
A compulsive book buyer, until 2011 I was an underpaid, undervalued nurse in the NHS until I decided that enough was enough and made my passion for reading and books my profession. I'm now a qualified proofreader and copy-editor with my own business. No regrets!
