About meAfter a lifetime of reading compulsively, I had somehow stopped reading much for five or six years. When my daughter introduced me to Library Thing, my obsessive-compulsion kicked in and I started reading again so I could have something to input on my site. Now I'm seriously hooked again.

About my libraryI read most anything, as long as it's well-written or relates to something I'm interested in. I like my fiction to be well-researched so I can learn as I relax with my book. I try not to own too many books - I run out of book space in my house and don't want to buy any more bookcases. Our public library is my lifeline.

Hello back. Despite not enjoying Chaloner terribly much I will have to read them all now that I've started! I notice you describe yourself on your profile as obsessive-compulsive and I can empathise with that.

There was a great review article in the Guardian last week about European crime fiction and it gave me some new ideas for authors to search out. You might like it:

Happy reading!
Do you mean The Incident Report? I actually read it 2 years ago, but I just posted the review. I really liked it.
Just another pop by! I see you've added My Soul to Take by Yrsa Sigurdardottir! I'm just about 40 pages in - but it looks to be a good mystery! I tell you more about it once I am further in. I see Michael Connelly is one of your favourite authors. My husband and I went out last night and saw movie The Lincoln Lawyers, which I am pretty sure is by Michael Connelly. We both really enjoyed the movie. If the movie comes your way -got an see it!:)

Just thought I'd pop by and say hi! According to library thing, you share the most books with me on their weighted scale. 40 books in common and considering that I have just less than 300 books in my library, and your just over three hundred books -that's really amazing!

What part of PEI are you in, if you don't mind me asking? Charlottetown? I've only visited PEI once , way back when I was but as a young teen who loved Anne of Green Gables I was throughly take by PEI!

Thanks for the book suggestion for my wife. I only just came across Roughing it in the Bush at a garage sale last month and was not aware of Sisters in the Wilderness. I will be sure to track it down for her.

I might have Fall on Your Knees here if you want.
Hey thanks. That's why I put them in, I think seeing is believing. And I didn't want people thinking I was slamming the guy for nothing.
Have you never read Heidi? I'm sure we still have a copy over here, plus the sequel. I bet I read those hundreds of times each. Loved them.
Nice job on all the tags! Now you have a real cloud.
