About meLibrarian without portfolio, working in IT at a university library. Strong ties to BC, Ontario and Queensland. Always looking forward to the next book sale.

About my libraryCurrently collecting in: maritime and polar exploration; Arctic, Antarctic, and Pacific studies; and military history, especially Australian or those with local (Queensland) history connections. I have a fair few works in both general Australian history and modern fiction, and some in Latin-American literature and poetry. I like to read about others' travels, but not guidebooks or travelogues in general.

All items are print versions and most are kept in Brisbane. The "currently reading" collection does not include any library borrowing at all, only books I've purchased. I buy some current fantasy and sci-fi ebooks, but have not recorded them here yet.
