Confessions of a serial book reader: I hoard books. I also love cataloguing them every few months (read: figuring out categories until my head smokes and stopping myself from defaulting to colour-coding because I know I’ll cry later).

I have a pretty sweet “this book belongs to” stamp and generally give the stink-eye to anyone coming to borrow a book with a history of not returning them.
