About meI'm a mother of two amazing kids (22YO girl & 20YO boy; both taller than me). I am a VP at a small biotech company and a geek, but wear lots of hats. I have a second dan black belt in shotokan karate, but have moved on to a more sedate yoga practice. I'm an american living in canada (now dual). [updated Oct 2014]

reading is essential to my well-being.

About my libraryThis is a web of books that I have read and found worth reading or have been recommended to me (tagged as 'should read'). On occasion I will include a book recommended to me that I've read and felt wasn't worth it (marked as a 2 star or below).

I don't necessarily own these books, and the majority that I do own aren't included here. I have read a lot more books, these are just the recent ones since I have started on librarything and/or have encountered while browsing librarything. I haven't entered most of the classics that I have read, even though I like many of them. Unfortunately this means that many of their recommendation lists for me are full of books that I have already read!

There is a canadian author bias that isn't necessarily mine due to the fact that I have lived here for the last 20 years, and my book club/local recommendations tend that way.
