About meI'm an amateur naturalist, aspiring writer, blogger, and bibliophile (obviously!) living in the province of British Columbia, Canada. I read a lot of books - typically over 100 in a year, although I'm not sure how I manage this, as I don't think I read particularly fast and I don't even read every single day.
About my libraryIn fiction, I enjoy quality fantasy and science fiction, as well as some nineteenth-century English literature. Ursula K. Le Guin is my favourite author, and I love any of her books. In non-fiction, I mostly read natural history, Celtic culture and mythology, books about books, and the history of science (particularly astronomy and physics). I also collect field guides, mainly out-of-print editions to the flora and fauna of British Columbia and surrounding areas. I have eclectic tastes, so you'll see many books in my library that do not fit into any of these categories.
