About meI'm a librarian in a mid-sized city in Florida, and I have a marvelous job! My guilty pleasure is murder mysteries, but I was an English major and I have read a good percentage of the Western canon. I also love cookbooks and am an avid beader.

About my libraryI am adding titles rather randomly as they come to mind as well as those I am currently reading. I own tons of books, the vast majority of which are not entered, but in recent times I have mostly been using the wonderful public library where I work. So - in some cases, this truly is a virtual library, since I don't personally own all the books.

Stumbled across your review of Nesbø's "The Snowman" while pursuing reviews for another book. Since you apparantly wondered about the main character's peculiar name (Harry Hole), I thought to supply a totally useless factoid :-)

"Hole" is a real surname in Norway. Mostly used by people living in a muncipality of the same name, or their descandants. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hole,_Norway )

BTW, you've an impressive number of translated Nordic mystery fiction!

Odd for your Spanish ancestor to come here. During the 2nd Spanish period 1783 - 1821 or much later would be more common. My Spanish ancestors came here in the 1600's and the 1800's. Not many people were here before the Civil war many deeply rooted Floridians have connection.
Saw your post about being a 5th generation Floridian and wondered what area your ancestors settled. Mine came from Alachua and St. Augustine, mostly. If you have ancestors from those areas, we may have shared ancestry. I see you are reading Swamplandia; I finished it a couple of weeks ago.
