I have always loved books, and reading. My tastes are quite eclectic and, in extremis, I would read anything. However, with certain exceptions, sci-fi, fantasy and Mills-&-Boon are not for me.

My AVLs are up for grabs, and so are the TBRs (I can always find them again), so do feel free to request, but postal restrictions may apply from time to time depending on finances.

Currently reading: Vanish in an instant by Margaret Millar

At the start of 2020, I began an Agatha Christie readathon. I shall be reading her novels in publication order, interspersed with my other reading. I anticipate that it will take about 2 years to complete. Watch this space!
