Extended Profile

I am an irregular reader (spend too much time studying or just lazing in front of the TV), although I have been reading a lot more since I discovered Bookcrossing. Have to love bookrings and rays!

I like varied reading, and will read from chicklit to detective novels to autobiographies to whatever non-fiction grabs me at the time.

I work as a part-qualified actuary (hopefully fully qualified soon - hence the studying), and my greatest cartoon heroes are Calvin and Hobbes.

Oh yes - and I crave pun jokes.


What I'm reading at the moment:
The Secret Life of Bees
