On the train to London, 2015

Hello! Thank you for stopping by!

I’m Jo, a twenty-something book lover living in Canterbury, UK. I work as an archives assistant and as a library assistant in an academic library, and am currently undertaking a distance-learning MA in Information and Library Studies at the University of Aberystwyth. (How’s it going? Slowly…)

When I’m not surrounded by books and manuscripts, I’m also training to be a Leader with GirlGuiding. I like vegetarian baking, travel, talking about politics, being with friends, tea and making things.

Manuscripts and Marginalia is an attempt to record all bits of my life depending on what I’m currently focused on; I love writing so this is very much a patchwork-quilt of a blog! I hope you enjoy it ^_^
