About meI love lists! The difficulty is that I sometimes need a list to remind me where my lists are. Here are some book lists I enjoy:

1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die
Governor General's Literary Awards
Giller Prize
Booker Prize
Orange Prize

When I'm reading classics, I opt for Penguin Classics whenever possible. I like their weight and cover art, and find Penguin's Introductions and translations to be excellent.

About my libraryMy library is comprised of books I've read, not necessarily own(ed). They're certainly not all here; nor do I intend to create such a catalogue. Rather, my plan is to use LT to track my annual adventures in reading, beginning with 2011.
