Om migI live in central London and have had a life long passion for books. Other interests include travel, theatre, opera, galleries and food - and I'm lucky to live in a city where I can indulge those.

I don't get to read nearly as much as I would wish, but I haven't reined in my purchasing habits to match.

Om mitt bibliotekI've now catalogued most of the books I own. The picture shows a fraction of my unread book collection. There are another two bookshelves hidden behind the sofa, and another two piles on the opposite side of the bookshelf shown. Oh, and several years on from my first writing this profile, there are now more piles of books teetering on top of the bookshelf. Despite reading at the rate of 100+ books a year. Don't even ask about my kindle.

My collection is a random mix, largely of paperbacks, built up over years of dedicated bookshop browsing. My collection is mostly fiction - largely modern fiction - but I'll buy anything that looks interesting. An addiction to browsing second-hand bookshops and the odd trip to Hay-on-Wye helps keep the unread books piling up, as does the fact that I live near one of London's most attractive and tempting bookshops (Daunts on Marylebone High Street).

I have started to catalogue books read and now lost/given away, as well as those I borrowed in the first place (I can boast that these are always returned, having finally in 2014 returned a book borrowed some time in the late 1990s). Everything is appropriately tagged, at least by my logic. So my library is becoming a catalogue of books I've read as well as books I own. It is now guaranteed never to be complete.

My other passion is cooking and I own more cookbooks than I will probably ever find time to cook from. Probably to the benefit of my waistline at least.
