About

Hi!

I’m Mayri and I’m 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 16 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. 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.

Welcome.

 

But maybe you’re still wondering if we’ll get along? 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.
