Acerca de míI am originally from Canada (Ottawa) but moved to Australia to marry my wonderful husband, Graeme. We live in country Victoria with our three cats, Hugo, Kasper and Maggie.

Acerca de mi bibliotecaI love books. I love the look of them, the feel of them, even the smell of them. So despite my Kindle, I find myself unable to stop collecting the real things.

The books I have included in my library are books that I love, books that I own and books that I want to read. I have not included hundreds of trashy books I read, mostly in my youth, although some of the more memorable ones have been added.

My reading taste tends toward history, biographies, sociology and well-written fiction.

My rating system:

* Frightfully bad.
** Sorry I bothered.
*** Enjoyed but did not love it. Might recommend it to a friend.
**** Loved it. Would recommend freely to friends.
***** An all-time favourite. Tell friends they should read it.

“Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity...we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access reassurance.”
― A. E. Newton
