Today is Day 1: Armchair BEA Kickoff, so it's time to tell you a little bit about me.
Who is the Book Gatherer?
Well, the name says it all really. I am a hoarder, a collector, a gatherer of books. No bookshop, thrift shop, carboot sale is safe from me. It's not that I love second hand collectors items, I just love a bargain book - and my eclectic collection of books shows there are plenty of bargains to be had!
If you could put one book in the hands of everyone you come in contact with, what would it be and why?
Wow! What a great question... and how can one decide? But I would have to say, it would be The Denniston Rose, by Jenny Pattrick.
What book are you looking forward to reading the most in 2011?
I can't wait for the final book by Jennifer Donnelly in the Tea Rose trilogy! It's been a long time coming!
Genres I read, love, can't put down?
My reading tastes are of a somewhat eclectic nature - much like my collection of books. I do read my fair chair of chick lit, but that fast gets tiresome... all I want is a good book and if that's murder-mystery, historical fiction, or family saga, then that'll do me. Just don't give me Sci-fi or YA!
