About meI am a confessed book addict. I read painfully slow because I try to savor each word. I keep track of how many books I read. I average about 2 per month. I usually have several books going at one time. I am a failed (edit: let's say "struggling") writer. An English degree and some really good creative writing courses under my belt didn't pay the rent, so I ended up in a technical job that does. I write in my spare time, what little there is.

About my libraryWe keep books all over the house, my wife and I. Art books in her studio. Non-fiction and humor in the guest room. My favorite, the fiction section, I keep in my office. I worked in a library while I was in college, so I have a great fondness for the way books look in stacks. I find it soothing. [N.B., This is *our* library, shared, but LT only allows for a singular profile. So my wife rates and reviews books here and notes them with a "-KA" signature.]

You're welcome-- I'm so glad that you're happy with my choices! I'm not a huge fiction reader these days, so I was a little nervous about it! I hope that SantaThing leads to some enjoyable reading for you as we enter the new year. :) Glad to hear that the Jonasson recommendation has re-sparked your interest, by the way-- isn't it funny how some books need some time to percolate before they finally fully enter your reading radar?

Anyway, thanks re: Suvi, my cat! I see that Gus, too, is oh-so-helpful-- that is one very familiar scene. Cats are kind of the best/worst that way, but I don't think I'd change them for it.

Thank you so much for selecting the most awesome books for me for SantaThing. I'm so so so happy with your choices, and I can't wait to read them. You really weren't the wrong secret santa for me :)
I hope your Christmas is wonderful!

Season's greetings from Ida, Norway :)
