About meI'm a librarian by training - I have been working from home on a web site and am a freelance information specialist (apparently). Married, no children, but we have recently adopted two cats, Lyra and Blizzard, and are well and truly under the paw.
About my libraryMany years ago I realised that you didn't have to read every book you owned before buying more, and since then, the brakes have been off. Moving to a smaller house three years ago forced some ruthless pruning of the collection, but there are still boxes of books in the garage that have never been unpacked. I mainly read fiction, with a particular fondness for crime, as well as modern and classic fiction. I'm also interested in literary criticism, the psychology of music and World war II social history. Although I part with most of my crime novels when I've read them, I am trying to collect the works of Henning Mankell, Sjowall and Wahloo, Alexander McCall Smith and Lindsey Davis. I also like the Persephone books and Virago Modern Classics.
