Love reading, but lots of other interests too - photography, art, sailing, cinema (preferably with subtitles), theatre (preferably quirky) and music (list way too long for here........).

So, having just heard about bookcrossing, I am about to release some of my most interesting books and look forward to hearing about their travels!

Favourite authors (apart from whoever I am reading right now!)

Haruki Murakami
Nicola Barker
Annie Proulx
Margaret Attwood
Jenny Diski
Kate Atkinson
Sally Vickers

Books which have remained in my memory (for all sorts of reasons - some which made me think, some which made me laugh):

Kafka on the Shore - Haruki Murakami
The Wasp factory - Ian Banks
The Scottish Enlightenment - Arthur Herman (should be read by all Scots!)
The Line of Beauty - Andrew Hollinghurst
Timoleon Vieta come home - Dan Rhodes
The Electric Michelangelo - Sarah Hall
Quicksilver - Neal Stephenson
The Dark is Rising Sequence - Susan Cooper

My wish list: (many thanks to cliff1976)
