Welcome to Plum-crazy's Bookshelf
I just love reading (surprise, surprise!) & I also love to buy books - I can't resist charity shops & library sales so many of the books on my shelf are for releasing rather than reading - I like to send books travelling. This means my shelf doesn't really reflect my taste, my reading list is a better indication of my reading habits & anything that piques my interest goes on my wishlist.
While I mainly read crime/thrillers I'm always open to something new (though I don't like biographies or sci-fi)
I do love a good grisly murder! - especially where the main characters are mavericks, outsiders or just plain off-the-wall, & I've recently discovered the delights Scandinavian crime fiction which has given me a host of "new" authors to catch up on. Working my way through the following crime/thrillers is an on-going pleasure & I can highly recommend each & everyone of the following series:

And here's a little more about me.....
...as well as reading, I love crosswords & quizzes of any sort & loud music!! -
it's gotta be rock; hard, heavy, metal - whatever!
If you need a hint for NSS etc....
I will try anything edible! I like milk chocolate (esp Galaxy, praline/truffles), love liquorice & have a serious addiction to Maynards Midget Gems....although any wine gum type sweet will be happily devoured :o)
Stationery & Bookcrossing supplies are always welcome, either store or home made. I love things that are fabric covered, stitched or created with handmade paper - in fact anything handcrafted that you've taken the time to make yourself is much appreciated.....
.......& something completely random always makes me smile :o)
