I have always loved books, and reading. My tastes are quite eclectic and, in extremis, I would read anything. However, with certain exceptions, sci-fi, fantasy and Mills-&-Boon are not for me.

My AVLs are up for grabs, and so are the TBRs (I can always find them again), so do feel free to request, but postal restrictions may apply from time to time depending on finances.

My lovely rescue dog Dieter (aka BrumDog) has his own bookshelf and is also happy to send books out.

Currently reading: Mrs Ali’s Road to Happiness by Farahad Zama
