I’m a recently retired library cataloger and a self-proclaimed bibliophile, who’s addiction to books is common knowledge and sometimes seems to take over my life.   I also love watching television, especially British television. It all started when my Dad and I used to watch programs like “Danger UXB”, “Eastenders” and “All Creatures Great and Small”, on our local PBS station.
By writing a blog I hope to justify, if only to myself, the
disproportionally large amount of time I spend reading and watching tv!

  1. Loved Eastenders! Would kind of like to work in a library or bookstore but I’m teaching EFL at the moment in France. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a job working in WH Smith in Paris. That’s what I’d love to change to. 😀

      • I feel more and more everyday that it’s going to happen. I’ve been stuck at home for the past 4 monte with a torn Achilles tendon. It was hard but gave me the time to reflect on lots of things and to find writing as well as throw myself into reading. Things happen for a reason.

  2. I found an old newspaper clipping for a poem “If You Had Known” by Helen Welshimer copyright 1936. My great grandmother keep it all these years.
