About my libraryMy collections include books that I have owned or borrowed and read, including almost all the books I read since 2006. There are gaps, some of which will never be filled. I will not be able to identify all the books I borrowed from the Winnipeg library system going back to 1965, or books borrowed from school collections. The dates are often estimated, and the editions are educated guesses. I rate things critically, including genre fiction that I have enjoyed.


Favorite authorsIain M. Banks, Saul Bellow, John le Carré, William Gibson, Stephen Jay Gould, Patrick O'Brian, George Orwell, David Quammen (Shared favorites)

I am in the midst of reading Introducing: Critical Theory and found your review/blog post very interesting. Looking forward to going through your other reviews in leisurely fashion.
I so admired your review of Conway's Snapping that I've had a very quick skim of first page of your other reviews & from it alone spotted one or two books I'll look into. Thanks. (Not secrets of Jesuit bread-making, though--god knows I must work my way through Dominican Pickling Recipes and Franciscan Tips for Perfect Pasta first . . . )
