Welcome, book lover! You're among friends ....
The above message greets those crossing the threshold of one of my favourite bookshops, Foyles in London, and the welcome has always given me a warm glow of comradeship. I extend the same greeting to you.
Within this online hub, I hope you'll find many friends, whether they're taken from my virtual bookshelves (as, to quote Louisa M Alcott, books are always good company if you have the right sort), or found within my communities of like-minded readers.

'I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have yet gone ourselves.'
