About meI read almost anything although I don't read much fantasy or many books that are described as romances. I like reading mysteries and science fiction but I probably read general literature the most. I am passionate about Canadian writing. Some of my favourite Canadian authors are L. M. Montgomery, Robertson Davies, Gabrielle Roy, Margaret Laurence, Spider Robinson, Timothy Findley and Frances Itani. Favourite authors from other places include Kathy Reichs, Ian Rankin, James Lee Burke, Arturo Perez-Reverte, Isabelle Allende and Connie Willis. I read whenever I have 5 or 10 minutes with nothing pressing to do (and sometimes even when there is something pressing to do). I have about 150 unread books in my house right now but I keep adding more.

About my libraryI'll add books as I read them or as I bring them home to read.

Thanks so much for all the suggestions for books covering Manitoba - I've added them to the collated list already and if you come across any more titles for there or elsewhere please let me know.

The Canadian coverage I found for Crime Fiction was quite patchy - some provinces had a ton of stuff and others almost nothing. Maybe that reflects the landscape and has something to with the way the populace is grouped and the vast expanses of wilderness you have to the north, (I think! - I'm probably demonstrating my limited understanding of Canadian Geography!)

Still it was really good to get more than one book listed for Manitoba!
