Om mitt bibliotek
I have decided to only put up those books which I currently own. I'm using this as a way for me to keep track of my personal library so just having read it isn't good enough.

I am attempting to read as many as possible of the 1001 Books to Read Before You Die, as well as to read at least 2 books from each year's Booker Prize Shortlist including the winner, which is why I have so many of these books!

Om mig
I'm a student in Australia who has worked in a small, independent bookshop for the last 5 years. I love everything about books and reading, and will read just about anything I'm given.

I've lived in both England and Japan for one year each which would explain the high English and Japanese content of my library. I loved living in Japan and learning more about the language and culture, but I would have chopped my own arm off to have access to more books in English! I'll never take bookshops and libraries for granted again!

I will only lend my books to people on the understanding that no page corners will be turned down and that they won't be left lying open face down. Pedantic I know, but my books are sacred!

I am currently reading:

Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. This is my first Rushdie, but it keeps winning everything related to the Booker, so I felt I should start with this one (plus, I borrowed it from a friend over a year ago and I should really return it!)


Twelve Caesars by Suetonius.


The History Of Tom Jones, A Foundling by Henry Fielding which seems to go on forever. I'm enjoying it, but it's being read in small doses, mainly in between other books.

I have recently read:

Ex Libris by Anne Fadiman

The Gathering by Anne Enright
Silk by Alessandro Baricco
The End Of The Affair by Graham Greene
The Cleft by Doris Lessing

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
The Getting of Wisdom by Henry Handel Richardson
On The Edge: My Story by Richard Hammond (the guy from Top Gear)
