Om migBooklover, book-buyer and blogging about it for 11 years - do visit 'AnnaBookBel' - see the link below. A materials scientist by training, I worked in industry for ages before becoming a mum, I now work as a school Lab Technician and Health & Safety Officer.

Om mit bibliotekI buy far too many books, my unread now outnumber my read ones, it's a nice struggle! I aim to read over 100 books each year, and to review most of the books I read - Do let me know what you think, (expanded reviews and comment are on my blog 'AnnaBookBel' http://www.annabookbel.net/ and also http://shinynewbooks.co.uk which I co-founded and co-edit).

While I mostly read contemporary and 20thC literature, I also read widely from much genre fiction (crime, SF&F, YA etc) and non-fiction (esp good biographies and popular science/medical books). I believe the best children's novels are every bit as good as adult ones too! The best of my daughter's books are included in my collections, alongside my own childhood favourites still on the shelves. Books I've read but not kept are only included where they're important, as part of a series, or I've reviewed them - these are tagged 'not kept'.

In 2019 I read 132 books and 21 earned 10/10.
In 2020 I've read 104 books (to early Nov) and 21 have earned 10/10 so far:
