"Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens." - Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

For NSS:
My wishlist is up to date. I enjoy a wide range of genres and am willing to give most things a go but don't enjoy horror or the more violent crime books.
I like dark chocolate, also jelly sweets, and am keen on a variety of fruit teas.
