About My Library
My LT library contains books that I presently own, and not titles I've borrowed or once owned but have since sold. I rate most books I've read, but generally not those written by friends or colleagues - and also not those I read long ago, or of which I read only some articles or chapters. My ratings are fairly high because I tend to ditch books I didn't enjoy, unless they fill out a collection or somehow contribute to my understanding of a field of interest.

My books fall roughly into these major categories: bibliophilia, poetry, abecedaria, bestiaries, art & design, maps & atlases, fiction, essays, literary criticism, books by friends, london, africa, architecture, speculative architecture, photography, graphic novels, data mapping, trauma theory, holocaust, life writing, travel, children's lit, cookbooks, artists' books, sylvia plath, ted hughes, anna kavan, paul celan.

At the moment, my global reading stands as follows (not just fiction, but poetry, history, politics, art, travelogues... anything):

About Me
I love to read, cook, travel, browse bookshops, have tea with friends, swim, cycle, run with my dog, & take photos. I love London, Boston, Calcutta, Havana, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, Barcelona, & the Cape Peninsula. I read a lot of non-fiction & poetry, and compared to many LTers, not much fiction. My favourite food is chocolate. But pomegranates are a close second. They squirt!

OR Concordance to Sylvia Plath (which could enable reconstruction of the Complete Poems...)
