I am a school librarian in London and a dedicated reader of children's  
literature. Not sure which was my first DWJ, but I suspect it was  
Charmed life. I still like that a lot, but I think that Deep Secret  
and its sequels have probably overtaken the Chrestomanci ones. My re- 
reads depend more on what I can get at in our overcrowded house (books  
in front of books, in piles on floors etc) than on which are my  
favourites. I think the only one I was less keen on was The  
spellcoats, though I liked it better the second time, and I have great  
difficulty rereading Cart and cwidder, because I find it so sad.

I am grateful to the list for introducing me to Bujold and Whalen  
Turner - finally read The Curse of Chalion (2-3 times), and am waiting  
for The hallowed hunt to arrive.

Another purchase this Christmas was Cynthia Voigt's Tell me if the  
lovers are losers, which I first read a long time ago and then lost -  
or rather the library copy went missing! It arrived today, and I  
couldn't wait to read it again - still enjoyed it, thank goodness. Is  
anyone else a Voigt reader?

I have 3 daughters, all home educated, though they're all beyond  
school now.

And I always sign myself EB, as that is what my husband calls me, so  
it's a sign of friendliness rather than formality!
