I’m a bibliophile and a logophile. I like nothing better than reading books, and this is my excuse to ramble on about the books that I like reading. Less “book reviews” and more “thoughts I have while reading books”.

I have two degrees, and I’ve done a whole range of jobs. My favourites have been: researcher, proofreader, librarian, jewellery maker, and costume designer.

If you, like me, like pictures of manuscripts and architecture and fashion, you can follow me on Pinterest.
