About My Library
Weighted with fantasy & science fiction, with an interest in most other genres as well. I like books for all moods.

I especially like stories that attempt to examine how our human mindset reacts/adapts to society and change. I've found a lot of science fiction and fantasy addresses those questions; some superbly written and others not. Then there's the sunday avo chill-out books, children's, classics, and mysteries.. even the odd airport timewaster is here..

RE: The desert island tag... if you were stranded on a desert island, what books do YOU want to read & re-read?

Cover art is an interest. I'll often choose a 2nd-hand edition over brand new if the older one matches other books in my set. I'll also choose a UK edition over a cheaper US one if I like the visual style more.

I've got many Agatha Christie 2nd-hand paperbacks because I love how illustrative art has changed each decade to convey the SAME story to new readers ... My favourites are the 1950's for sheer liveliness of image vs. the same story illustrated 20 years later in the swirly 70's. [80's reprints were a new low in ugliness and are funny for their sheer awfulness]. She's the only author I've come across who's been reprinted every decade. That's a huge canvas to view illustrative and advertising changes in society.
Feel welcome to search my library to see all my Agatha Christie , Pan Covers , or the HarperCollins series from over a decade ago retro 30s tribute covers to see the differences.
