    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...

    Still Love To Read Books

    The second part of this Experience title sounds like an invite to bragging. Or at least, like the notches on an old Hollywood pistol, or the swastikas on the fuselage of a WWII Spitfire. As if I'm supposed to say: I've got x books, how many have you got? If the answer is x - a I...

    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.
