About My Library
The books listed in my LT library are just a fraction of what I have. I am gradually adding more as I come across them on my shelves and unearth ancient tomes in the attic that swallows all.

My tastes are pretty eclectic but genres that I tend to read a lot are:

Crime and Mystery - Great fan of Sherlock Holmes in all his incarnations, Modesty Blaise, James Bond, other serial heroes and villains (e.g. Fu Manchu), love Noir novels, especially Cornell Woolrich
Books about cinema - Great fan of all things horror or trash with a deep undying love for the classic Hammer movies but also love all things Eurotrash
Classic novels - Will I ever finish all the 1001 books I need to read before I die? Nope, but I will die trying
Horror/SciFi - Love those genres and need to urgently revisit some of the classics of my youth. I have, however, some surprising gaps in my knowledge and am more familiar with Guy N Smith than Stephen King.
Graphic Novels - Well, comics, as I like to call them. I used to never include them in my list of books as I believe they are a totally different media format but what can I say: they make my reading list appear much bigger than it often is.

Oh, and I *do* buy books for their covers as I really love the vintage 1960s/70s paperback design and especially some of the vigilante style men's adventure novels of the time.

Totally useless at all my challenges which doesn't stop me from continuously attempting more:

My challenges:
(So totally not) My 2013 Category Challenge
My 2014 Challenge (A bit closer to a real one for a change)
(At last a proper) 2015 Challenge from me
IrishHolger's easily cheatable 2016 challenge
Reading Globally: Irish Holger's Trip around the World
