About My Library
I read, I read an awful lot!

Any Dewey numbers added to files are from Dublin City Council Public Libary's Catalogue (occasionally the British Library). I find most of my non-fiction leisure reads from Dublin City Library.

grading:

5/5 - re-read this one regularly, it sparked something in me

4/5 - would willingly re-read but it just lacks the special something

3/5 - good read, neither moved me or annoyed me

2/5 - niggles, went back to library without re-read

1/5 - I want that time back

Some Tag Explination:

Libary - got from the library, in brackets means I replaced the library copy with my own.

BCIE - was a Dublin Bookcrossers Book Choice of the month

FantasticFiction - was a fantastic fiction choice

A two letter code with Library is the source branch.

Mac means that it's part of my husband's collection

About Me
What can I say about me... I'm a booklover who works as a librarian with Dublin Public Libraries, has gone through Cancer (Hodgkin's Lymphoma) and gotten my 9 year all-clear, happily married to Dave - with no children, lives in Dublin and would much rather be in Galway where I'm from.

There have been a lot of people befriending me, which I don't mind, but if there's a reason beyond "oh wow you have a lot of books" comment here. I don't auto-befriend people. Too many books, too little time

I also really don't take part enough in the groups I have already joined. Please do not be offended if I don't join yours.

Favourite Libraries are the places I've actually worked for any period of time.
