Acerca da Minha Biblioteca
My main obsession is fiction. I'll read anything but I naturally gravitate towards fantasy and comedy. I want one day to have a large collection of Viragos (with green covers). My fiction books are squashed onto shelves at my Dads and are arranged mostly by the what can be crammed in there principal. I hope one day to have shelves of my own to alphabetise on.

I can't read anything overly gory so you'll find a lack of crime and horror on my shelves. I have a very overactive imagination and scary keeps me up for days. Bloody makes me feel (and be) sick.

I also have some non-fiction. Mainly this comes from stuff I need (or want!) for my degree. What cook books and craft books? Oh them? Yes that's an obsession too. I even occasionally make stuff from them.

If I had more cash I would buy more books about. Fiction gets bought whether I have the cash or not although with my new found unemployment I also found the Library.
Acerca de Mim
I wish I was one of those people who could say that they learned to read before they went to school. I didn't. I did learn to talk before I could walk though. Mainly because I was, and am, both very gobby and very lazy.

I started to learn to read in my first year at school. It didn't go well. I'm dyslexic only nobody noticed until I was seventeen. So I sucked at reading and writing. Or rather I sucked at spelling and the teachers just sort of assumed that my reading and writing sucked. Which was nice of them. That lasted until I had one teacher who realised that giving me the same school books you would give to infants when I was taking (factual) books out of the library meant for the oldest kids was a bit strange, or something.

From that shaky ground I started to like reading. As a hobby that is. 'Bad speller' on my reports kept me away from loving English the subject. Until I was doing my GCSE course works and another teacher noticed that although I had the spelling age of a 6 year old what I was using those misspelled words to say was quite impressive. Yay. I was promoted to the top set where the work was much more engaging and fun and I went for an English degree.

It went rather badly, I dropped out with depression in the third year. 3/4 of the way through Ulysses.

I'm an unnatural red head who is working on a small collection of facial piercings. I make things, I try to write things. I'm a Girl Guide Guider.

My current obsessions include hats, the eighteenth century, the 1930's, dwarf hamsters, tofu, and thin blokes with nice hair and a posh voice.
