Introduction Coleridge once described himself as 'a library cormorant', and I love to imagine him diving down among the bookshelves coming up with all kinds of odd volumes. Sounds like paradise! This blog reflects my own interests and is a kind of literary serendipity - or cormorant's lunch, if you like! I read very widely, everything including serious literary fiction and non-fiction, young adult, chick-lit, frothy romantic fiction, poetry, crime/thrillers (a particular addiction), politics, eco-philosophy, travel etc etc though I'm not great on sci-fi or fantasy. If you want to find out more about me or the books I write myself, please go to my website at www.kathleenjones.co.uk
Interests I love reading, gardening, listening to music, eating, drinking, and travelling.
Favorite Music I love opera, jazz, rock, folk, but hate techno.
