Now, what to say about myself? I love reading (obviously!), dancing, visiting the theatre - all the usual stuff.
I read all sorts of things, but tend towards crime & science fiction more often than not.
The books I've really enjoyed, I tend to keep (although can be persuaded to loan them out to people I know) - so they're not all registered here.
Unsurprisingly, the "to be read" pile is teetering on the brink of a bookalanche, yet again I need to do some serious reading this year!
I have a Little Free Library in Roslin, Midlothian and also run an OBCZ in the nearby village of Auchendinny at The Glencorse Centre (screen name, unsurprisingly, is GlencorseCentre).
There are a lot of Little Free Libraries in and around Edinburgh. Here's a list of those that I have visited:
Auchendinny Phone Box, bottom of The Brae
Bilston Book Box, outside Bilston Community Garden
Royal Botanic Garden, now at the West Gate
Braidburn Valley Park, Greenbank Crescent entrance
Comely Bank, corner of Learmonth Avenue and Comely Bank Road
