About my libraryThis is a portion - perhaps one-quarter to one-third of all of my books. Many (maybe even more than half) are non-fiction, but I admit I like fiction better.
Have I read all of these books? LOL. But I'm working on it!

Charles Foran's "Mordecai" was NOT "unauthorized, of course" Didn't you read it?
Hello ParadisePorch,

Thank you so much for entering the Librarything Giveaway and I'm delighted you have won a free download of 'Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools'. I've been given your email address and will send you the download instructions shortly. I really hope you enjoy reading 'Chickens' as much as I enjoyed writing it.

A review is not necessary, but if you have any comments, I'd love to hear them! My email address is TopHen @

Hoping the weather is not too cold where you are. (We live up a Spanish mountain and it's freezing, though no snow yet, touch wood…)

Hello from Saint John! Yes, I enjoyed the Cahill although a friend of mine said he enjoyed his (Cahill) book on the Irish better. I have a copy but haven't had a chance to read it yet....I'm afraid I have a lot of books that fall into that category! I too love cozy mysteries....have been reading some Jane Langton lately. I have really liked almost all of them with the exception of one I recently read which took place in Florence and was called The Dante Game. I loved her book set in made me want to go there. I have read one Lea Wait....and enjoyed it. Was Shadows on the Ivy any good? I LOVE P. D. James and am presently reading The Private Patient. James must be close to ninety but she still writes so well. Like you, I don't like gory murder novels or anything too "forensic", although I enjoy watching the CSI shows on tv.
Also...I have a question for you since you like Canadian lit. I was asked to suggest some good Canadian books for a friend to take to a relative in Portugal. I recommended Alistair MacLeod's No Great Mischief and Mitchell's Who Has Seen the Wind? Do you have any suggestions? The man in Portugal speaks and reads English very well.
Hi from another Maritimer! Thanks for adding me to your "interesting library" list. I've just come in from a used book store where I picked up a couple of L.M. Montgomery's that I didn't have. My niece is coming to visit me this summer (she is from Seattle) and is a big "Anne" fan. Just like I was at her age (10) and of course, I still am. I will have to take a look at your books....I see we have quite a few in common. I am reading Sailing the Wine Dark Sea (Why the Greeks Matter) by Thomas Cahill as I am going to Greece this summer....and want to be prepared! However, I really prefer fiction. I read a lot of Canadian literature and I like mysteries. I see a few interesting ones you have added lately....I have read the Lea Wait and enjoyed it. bye for now, Brenda
Thanks for befriending me.
