I am quite a slow reader at the moment but I usually have one or two books on the go at one time. I didn't think I was a reader of crime fiction until I discovered Patricia Cornwell and I was completely hooked.
I love Philip Pulman and of course Harry Potter. I grew up with all the Narnia books as well as the Faraway Tree and the Wishing Chair. I expect thats where I get my love of all things magical!
I like a good biography and are fascinated by the Bloomsbury Set - Vita Sackville West etc. I have also read everything that has been written about the Mitford Sisters.
Going on holiday in about 3 weeks so I have the enviable task of choosing books to take for a week in the sun.
