I am a dedicated borrower of books. I spent my childhood being babysat by libraries. I spent my teenage years hiding from my peers in libraries. I spent my university years studying (and sometimes sleeping) in libraries. And I’ve spent the last 15 years working in libraries.

I’m also a bit of a magpie, as I think most of we bookish people are, and will pick books up from anywhere. As a child I used to love rooting through our parents’ bookshelves on the landing and through our Nana’s wardrobe of books and through our small local library’s shelves. Maybe it’s a bit egocentric, but found books often feel like they’ve been waiting just for you, and I love that feeling.

I don’t only read SFF, but it is my primary flavour. I’ll read anything except a straight-up romance, and some of my all-time favourite books have nothing to do with dragons, phasers or aliens.

Wondering if we’ll get on? Try these posts first:

When I first started this blog I made a page about my ‘All Time Greats’ that you can visit here if you’re interested.

More recently I did the A to Z for Book Bloggers tag here.

And a post I’m particularly proud of is this one about the best library book I ever read.
