About meMy siblings have nicknamed me Scrat as I can be a just a tiny little bit obsessive. I am an avid and eclectic reader who doesn't sleep as much as she I just gotta get that acorn.

About my libraryI often read 50+ novels a year. Rather than include all the books I have ever read, I have decided to include only those I've read and really enjoyed since 2000. I prefer modern well written literature but also enjoy the occasional light read.

Hi Sue from Ottawa : ). I grew up in your city and attended uni there. Found you in one of the message threads and stopped by to check out your library. We have several books in common, and have rated them all very similarly. I love your review of Annabel; I'm waiting patiently in my library's queue for it. See you on the boards! Nancy
Hi Scrat! Thanks for the welcome! I've heard the name Brian Doyle but not read any of his work. It's on my to be read list now! With a title like Up To Low it's got to be interesting! Thanks so much for that recommendation. Enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
Thank you for the interesting libraries add! Now let me happily go through your books to pick up future reading ideas. May I say that you have excellent taste? I'm especially curious about "Come, Thou Tortoise" which I've heard a lot of interesting things about.
Thank you for your nice compliment on my review of Swallows of Kabul. You helped to remind me how good that book is. Sitting in the comforts of life in America I was transported into another existence. Before I forget I am going to look up some other books by the author and put them on my wish list. For that I thank you again.
I actually found a few copies. Send over your mailing address (my e-mail is and I'll send you a physical copy.


Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to learn a little more about the book before you commit:


Thanks for the is always a bit of a thrill to get one! yes, we do seem to enjoy similar books. I will place your recommendation on my list, which I carry in my purse to refer to when I'm at the library or bookstore. I think you will enjoy [The Winter Vault]. I thought it was excellent. Another Cdn recommendation I can make to you is Good to a Fault. This was just a perfect balance of moral dilemma and enduring character.
Keep in touch,
Thankyou Scrat for acknowledging my library. I am new to library thing, but I am enjoying the connection immensely. Our libraries are similar because like you, I prefer modern literature. I am a co-founder of a neighbourhood book club unofficially known as "the hammersisters". We started 14 years ago(pre-Oprah) and have truly become sisters over that time. I am looking forward to seeing what you are reading. I am not as prolific a reader as you but I have The Middle Child, Through the Black Spruce and An Imperfect Offering on my night table, for the summer.Enjoy your summer and read often! Thanks for the connexion. Saratuck
