"I have lost all sense of home, having moved about so much. It means to me now--only that place where the books are kept." John Steinbeck

I'm currently reading: Embassyville by China Mieville (04.07.2014)

Bonjour et bienvenue a! J'aime beaucoup les livres et je lu tous les jours...mais pas autant que je voudrais. Je suis un archeologue qui travaille et habite a Liverpool. j'aime mon travail notamment travailler à l'extérieur. J'aime histoire moderne, histoire ancienne et particulaire les histoires des arabes depuis le premiere millenaire (avant l'Islam). Si j'ai un livre que vous souhaitez, dis-moi!

I am an archaeologist with interests in Maritime History and Archaeology, Near Eastern and Turkish Archaeology and the Anthropology of Death and Burial. I mainly work on big construction sites or in cemeteries. I like history, archaeology, architecture, engineering, music, photography, URBEX and any books on the 1001 books list. I am very interested in reading about Colonial African History and the History of Turkey from the fall of Byzantium through the Ottoman Empire to the present day. I also love travelling and travel books, particularly classic accounts of travels in the Middle East and Africa.

If you see a book on my available shelf then that means i am usually willing to send it on. I will ask for a trade if it is a hardback book though and usually it will have to be a wishlist trade. NB I am not likely to send books to you if you have been on book crossing for years but are really inactive. Also my ability to send books out around the globe is dependent on my finances and where I am working i.e UK or abroad so please don't be offended if I have to say no sometimes!
