Quant a miWriter living in The Gap, Brisbane, with her partner, Craig. Jack the Big Cat died in February 2012, a fondly remembered scallywag. We now have our next rescue cat, Max, who we adopted at eight months old from Furry Friends.

la meva biblioteca
Wide range: lots of books on mental illness and psychology, literature and writing (not so much 'how-to' as 'why' and 'what'), politics, animal rights, feminism, autobiographies and biographies and memoirs. Fiction is mixture of classic and contemporary, if I can put it like that: more Jackie Kay than Jackie Collins, Bill Shakespeare than Bob Barrett. We're not science fiction or fantasy readers (though do have some of those books, including China Mieville), and there's not much crime and no horror (don't mind a good crime novel, hate horror I'm afraid as it gives me nightmares for days). Mind you, there's a fair bit of crime and horror in King Lear...

Favourite bookshops in our town are Avid Reader at West End and Folio Books in the city for new stuff, and Bent Books (just a few steps up from Avid) and Archives Books in the city for second hand. A wonderful sense of community combined with an excellent selection of titles (plus DVDs) at Avid; Folio has beautiful big books on art and photography and history and architecture, as well as literature and psychology and lots of delicious things; Kat will always greet you at Bent, knows her shop inside out and has a great paperback novel selection (and more out the back); and Archives is a place to lose yourself for some hours (watch out for the overhead fans if you get up on a stool to investigate the many, many volumes out of reach).

Sadly, Charing Cross Books has gone. I would guess, though, that the owner may be still selling rare and interesting books, somewhere, to his regular customers.
