A propos de ma bibliothèque
My library unsurprisingly contains mostly fantasy books but I do have several crime (Agatha Christie) and thriller books as well as personality books.
My favourite five books are:
Lord of the Rings
Fionavar Tapestry
Jane Eyre
Chronicles of Thomas Covenant
Sherlock Holmes stories.

Some of the authors that I've discovered recently and really like are:

Lynn Flewelling
Juliet Marillier
Naomi Novik
Scott Lynch
Lois McMaster Bujold

I borrow a lot of books from the public library as I can't afford to buy them all but certain authors such as Stephen Donaldson and Guy Gavriel Kay I always buy.

One of my wishes if I ever win the lottery is to have a room lined with shelves of books and have time to read them!
A propos de moi
Reading is my great passion. I love the way a great author can make you feel, that through words alone someone can make you cry and laugh and really care about their characters.
I am a librarian at a UK health library but don't hold that against me! I have always read a lot. The public library was my second home when I was a child. Now, my main reading interest is fantasy books. As a child I read a lot of horse books and "Famous Five". As a teenager I strayed more into science fiction. My first introduction to fantasy was "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" when I was 11.
When I was 15, I read Lord of the Rings and fell in love. It remains my favourite book. I was then lucky enough to discover "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant" which were being published at the time. They also leapt into my top five books.
At University I was lucky enough to make a friend who was REALLY into fantasy books and she introduced me to a wide range of authors including David Eddings and Barbara Hambly. She also lent me a copy of "The Summer Tree" and Guy Gavriel Kay's Fionavar Tapestry became my second favourite book.
Fantasy has remained my main love. I belong to a reading group which has been interesting for leading me to books which I wouldn't have touched with a barge pole and sometimes you wish you hadn't! But it has also introduced me to some excellent books outside the fantasy area. I don't read as much as I wish I could as work makes me too tired to read much on weekdays so my reading is often confined to weekends and holidays. It's frustrating but can't be changed.
