My wish list

I’ve taken my wishlist off Amazon because it was all getting confusing, (but left a link to this page on it – hello if you’ve come from there!). My BookCrossing wishlit isn’t available to everyone. So here’s my wishlist. If you buy something off it and you want to have it removed to save double buying, email my husband and he’ll remove it! If you want to check whether I already have a book, all of the books I own and those I’ve read in the last few years but not kept are indexed on LibraryThing.

Note: for additional goodies, I love dark chocolate, over 70% is best, or any sweeties that are under 1% saturated fat. I like cats but I’m not keen on cat-themed stuff.
