WELCOME to a place dedicated to the love of books. Years ago I was on a holiday in New Zealand in a small town called Oamaru where the writer Janet Frame and her family lived from 1931-1943. I wandered into a book shop called Slightly Foxed, and the woman behind the large wooden counter said it was a term used in the second hand book industry to describe the brown spots that can appear on old books.

I’m not entirely sure how this blog will take shape, but I’m curious to find out.
