Books, Life and Everything- an update

Well, it's been almost two months since I started this blog, so I thought I'd take stock and see where I was up to. So far, I've loved doing this and making little changes to it as I go along. I've also enjoyed looking at other people's blogs, all so individual.

I thought I'd a fill in a few gaps about me. 

I live in a small village on the outskirts of Yorkshire, within hailing distance of Manchester. I've always loved reading but it drifted a bit over the years and I've rediscovered it now that I have more time on my hands. I have a B.A. in English and a M.A. in Literature. For the latter, I wrote my dissertation on Emily Bronte and her Gondal poems. I really love Victorian writing but I am trying to widen up my reading range. I think that's why I've tried to sort my books out into the centuries , so that I can keep track of how I'm doing.

I've also started to write. I like the idea of looking at things from lots of different perspectives and that what you see on the surface isn't what is actually going on in a person- not always, anyway.

I'm not intending this blog to be anything other than a celebration of books and writing- some old favourites and some new friends. If you would be interested in writing a guest blog, I would love to hear from you.
Please comment on anything that strikes you, either on the blog or you can email me on I'm also on Twitter - @bookslifethings.

All for now and happy reading
