I have never been particularly good at this sort of thing- there is nothing worse for me than sitting in a room full of strangers and hearing the guy standing up at the front say “when it comes to your turn, please stand up, tell us your name, and tell us a little about yourself” so I will try to keep this brief. Here we go:
I was a bookseller, at a time when the whole industry was changing.
I am married to someone smarter and better looking than me. She’s also in the book trade.
I have two children, an 8 year old boy and a 3 year old girl. I think they are better looking than me. They think they are smarter.
I was trying to write a book, and using this blog to keep myself going. Instead, I discovered that blogging was much more fun than writing a book, so now I’m a blogger.
If there’s anything I’ve left out, feel free to ask. I will try not to be too evasive in my responses.
