Hi, I'm Chris. My love of books started when I was a child visiting libraries with my Dad. The smell and feel of old pages still sparks something within me that can I can only express as an emotional attachment to books. Two decades later this evolved into a passion for collecting rare books, particularly 17th century early-English literature, and rare children's books. I believe every book has its own story and each one reveals something new about the world we live in.

I created Books.org as a home for book lovers. Somewhere for bibliophiles to find their next read, recommend their favorite books to others, and to celebrate everything about books. Books.org started its life in 1998 as a marketing association for book stores, and has evolved to become a community with reviews and information on all things books.

My other interests include software development, electronics (especially vintage computing) and astronomy. When I'm not running Books.org I'm a board member at the International Space Association. You can also find me on Twitter and LinkedIn.

I'm an avid reader and bibliophile. With an unquenchable thirst for stories, I love nothing more than burying my nose in a good book - whether it's curled up on the sofa or out in nature. My deep curiosity and appreciation of diverse writing means that there's no one genre that I prefer, but I'm especially keen on books full of adventure and vivid imagination. With the great outdoors just a few steps away, I often find the perfect blend of relaxation and inspiration by reading outdoors - a pastime I'm especially passionate about!
