About meHi, I'm Allie. I'm in my mid-50s, twice divorced, with three grown children who have fled the nest, and two cats who have not. I live in Ontario, Canada, where I work for a small software company in their customer support department. In my spare time I read copious amounts of books, usually about a hundred a year. Also, I find deep relaxation in learning languages. At the moment I'm immersed in Latin-American Spanish, and in Swedish.

I love to travel, to play any sort of word game, and to take long walks with my camera. I'm fascinated with etymology, linguistics, paleoanthropology, and the British Royal Family.

About my libraryMy library is mainly fiction, and these days it's heavily weighted by Scandinavian crime novels. I've been reading them for over a decade, and collecting them has become one of life's real pleasures. There's also other stuff in my library: books about animals - particularly primates, biographies, some fantasy and science fiction, and a bit of true crime, books on the British royals, various religious studies texts, and a goodly amount of classic fiction.
