Quant a miBooklover, book-buyer and blogging about it for coming up to 13 years - do visit 'AnnaBookBel' - see the link below. A materials scientist by training, I worked in industry for ages before becoming a mum, I now work as a school Lab Technician and Health & Safety Officer. Always reading.

Quant a
la meva biblioteca
I buy far too many books, my unread now outnumber my read ones, it's a nice struggle! I aim to read over 120 books each year, and to review most of the books I read - Do let me know what you think, (expanded reviews and comment are on my blog 'AnnaBookBel' and also which I co-founded and co-edit).

While I mostly read contemporary and 20thC literature, I also read widely from much genre fiction (crime, SF&F, YA etc) and non-fiction (esp good biographies and popular science/medical books). I believe the best children's novels are every bit as good as adult ones too! The best of my daughter's books are included in my collections, alongside my own childhood favourites still on the shelves. Books I've read but not kept are only included where they're important, as part of a series, or I've reviewed them - these are tagged 'not kept'.

In 2021 I've read 129 books to early November and 19 have earned 10/10:
- The House With No Doors by Jeff Noon
- Diary of a Film by Niven Govinden
- Lanny by Max Porter
- Signs Preceding the End of the World by Yuri Herrera
- A Rage in Harlem by Chester Himes
