Interesting to see which books even committed readers can’t face to plough through. (I filtered out those which had only a few users.) Gabriel Garcia Marquez is up there for me, merely because the name’s so off-putting. Not surprised to see Jonathan Strange up there – it’s great but also an award winner (always hard to make yourself read) and thicker than a hillbilly’s head.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
