About My Library
All books entered in the 'My Library' collection belong to me. Books in the 'Purged' Collection were once part of my library but have now been ruthlessly purged!

I must admit I have become a compulsive book buyer and collector with shelves at home being double-stacked and still overflowing. My wife insists that I cut down and has proposed budgets and rationing as ways to limit the number of books coming in. All such proposals have had only limited success so far.

In the last couple of years there has been a major shift in my reading towards fiction, particularly science fiction and fantasy, and these now make up the bulk of my collection. Mixed in with the fiction and history, you'll also find a spot of poetry and philosophy and even the occasional graphic novel.
About Me
I'm Pakistani, a teacher by profession and historian by education. Much of my childhood was spent in different countries but I've been settled in Karachi for a while now.

I've always loved books and enjoy reading. My first bout of book collecting came when I was an undergraduate student, and mostly consisted of books on history. From 2004 onwards, I started collecting fiction - mostly science fiction and fantasy though not exclusively so. My library reflects these different interests.
