About meI moderate a group here on LT: Antique Books on LT
& I run a group on facebook: Book Collectors - Antique & Vintage Only

When I'm not reading, I love rainy days. music. strong milky black tea. autumn. crackling records. one too many digestive biscuits. baking bread. learning to knit. being crafty. contemplating poetry. wanting more cats. being a hermit. I prefer to keep very private.

About my librarymy interests:

- cosy novels, autumn settings, english countryside settings

- all kinds of mysteries

- classics & poetry

- public domain books, especially childrens books & fairytales.

- gardening fiction and non-fiction, especially plant folklore & gardening history. I'm disabled, and at my current location I have no pain-free way of gardening myself, so I indulge in learning about all matter of green things.

- Rural memoirs, especially set in England

- Vintage YA, especially set in England, especially if it involves time travel, castles or mansions or any domain like that, a mystery, a library, or cats.

- Novels by British women writers of the early to mid 20th century.

- Some fantasy, though I'm picky. I like it to be historical based, with bards & things.

- Dark academia.

- Books about books.

Books were my solace through a very bad childhood, and even though I'm much better now, my love of books has never left me. I love research & cataloging as well, sometimes I find myself going through book websites more often than I read. The thrill of the hunt I suppose!

Best ways to view my Library, if you're so inclined..

-"My Library" collection: Style A. Will show you date acquired & where, and also interesting notes about edition, condition, inscriptions, things found in them etc.
-"Public Domain" collection: Style B. This is where I like public domain books and sites. It will show you original publication date vs date of scanned edition, link to the website, tags & collections.
