    From my bookshelf

    QuoScript blog post My Library

    Individuals’ book collections are said to offer deep clues to their characters and interests – and doubtless this is broadly true. However, there may be many reasons why certain books have found themselves on someone’s bookshelves, not all of them by personal choice. This is especially true if most of your career, like mine, has been spent working with authors, publishers and booksellers. Some of the volumes that have found their way on to such owners’ shelves inevitably will have been promotional gifts or simply acquired by accident, to be retained through sentimentality or inertia.
