About meA book addict married to another book addict.

My main reading areas at the moment seem to be 20th century women's literature (Virago Modern Classics and Persephone books), detective novels from the 19th century to mid twentieth century, 19th century sensation novels (I've been rereading Wilkie Collins and just discovered Mary Elizabeth Braddon) and books nominated for what was the Orange Prize for Fiction. I also enjoy fantasy, science fiction, children's books, historical fiction and anything else that catches my interest. I always feel as if I ought to read more non-fiction or translated fiction.

My 'To read' collection, as you can see, is a little out of control (and we are definitely running out of bookcases despite double-stacking)

My threads for the 2017 75 Book Challenge are here:

About my libraryAll the books in the 'My Library' collection belong to me and my husband. Books tagged 'Dan' are books I identify as his although that doesn't necessarily mean that I don't read them.

Wishlist books are my way of keeping track of all the book recommendations I have been getting from the 75 Books Challenge Group. Read but unowned books have either been swapped, given away or returned to the library.

Books in the 'Omnibus' collection are the individual works we own in omnibus form. These haven't been included in our library.

Books tagged as wrong cover have a different cover to those already uploaded to the site. I'm also slowly tagging books as Amazon cover where the only cover that matches mine is the Amazon one. At some point I need to spend some time with our scanner...

Tags are still a work in progress. I thought it would be interesting to see the nationalities of the authors I'm reading so I've started tagging those. It's worrying though that the most common tags are still 'Wishlist' and 'TBR'.
