About My Library
At some point this will contain a list of all the books that I own. As I own a fair few, and they are all in a large number of boxes and bookcases scattered over a few locations, this could take a while.

Last book read:
The Separation by Christopher Priest
- WW2 alternate history with Priest's now patented style of conflicting narratives and seriously fucked up characters. Well written but left me feeling cold.

Currently reading:
Thicker Than Water by Mike Carey
- okay, so I shun all other urban fantasies involving magic and/or the undead but make an exception for Carey, possibly because these are set in London or maybe because they are very readable. More on this later.
About Me
"The possession of a book becomes a substitute for reading it." Anthony Burgess in the New York Times Book Review; 4 December, 1966.

“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.” Jeanette Winterson

I have a compulsive book buying habit, I have more unread books than I could reasonably finish given 4-5 years of not buying any new books, and to top it all off I have an OCD about the condition of my books such that I cannot damage my books in any way without near crying.

To say that I am obsessive about books would be a mild understatement
