    My Home Is Like a Second-hand Bookshop...

    I just love having lots of books around; reading books, and audiobooks, too.  I now have so many of both, that I'm running out of shelf-space to house them neatly.  So the spare room is becoming pretty crammed with the overspill.  Ok, so I know there are too many...

    Love Me, Love My Books

    My room is a small library. I am a total bookworm--put anything in my hands and I'll read it. If I had to pick a favorite genre, it would be a tie between horror and historical fiction, but for the most part, I'll read whatever crosses my path.
