About meRecently relocated to Cairns in QLD I am enjoying the warm weather and sunshine! My interests are wide and include reading, traveling, history, social justice issues, gardening, cooking, quilting and embroidery and textile art.

About my libraryI have a broad range of tastes and styles when it comes to reading. My (and hubby's) bookshelves have just about every genre imaginable: classics, philosophy, biography, memoirs, travel/adventure, social history, feminism, historical fiction and non-fiction not to mention a few cookbooks and lots of books on sustainable living, gardening and patchwork. A lot of my novels and non-fiction have now been cataloged on LT but I still have a number of collections to add - philosophy, gardening, children's books, art/craft books and DVD's.
