This blog is a record of the books I have read. It was born out of my love of reading – and the fact that my friends often ask me to recommend books for them. It’s 2011 and I turned 40 this year. Looking back on my life so far, books seem to define who I was at a particular time, to feature heavily in my memories of key events, and to provide a framework to my past. The plan is to catalogue all the books I will read over the next 40 years – forming a diary of sorts but, more importantly, a way to share the best, and the worst, of Cath’s library. It will feature books already on my bookshelves because I like to revisit them time and again, as well as new discoveries. What I am not setting out to do is literary criticism – this blog is very much my own personal response to the books I have read, and what they mean to me.
A bit about me: I live in South East London and work for an MP. I have an 18 year old daughter and a cat called Molly.
