Welcome to my 'blog'! This has been on my list of things to do for a long time now and finally I have got round to doing it! First of all an introduction... I admit I am an addict. I am addicted to books. I cannot walk past a bookshop without walking in and browsing for a long time, I cannot resist a bargain and I love the smell and feel of old books. As a result, my current reading pile is towering at 20+ varied books. They range from brand new releases, to 'classics' from the popular to the obscure, fact and fiction and shiny new buys to charity shop steals (not literally!)

I read and write a lot of reviews on websites such as Amazon and Waterstones and thought I would like to collect all of my thoughts in one place, keep a record of what I read and find out what other book obsessives are reading and recommending. From now on, free time committing, I am aiming to share what I am reading, critiques of books and various other musings on books and authors. I started a book group earlier in the year, which is proving difficult to find enjoyable, thought-provoking reads for the variety of members, so tips from any other book clubs would be welcomed!

I will also delve into the world of film and theatre with a literary connection (I work in theatre, so may also give an insight into the odd production!) and also occasionally give reviews on any exhibitions, or events in London which I think followers may enjoy.

I look forward to discovering blogs and making friends while on my world wide web journey, but right now it has been a long day so I think it is time to have a bath, make a cup of tea and curl up on my favourite chair with my current read.

Bye for now!
