About meA librarian since January 2007 from the Royal School of Library and Information Science in Copenhagen.
Since May 2008 I have been a children's librarian at the Public and Central library of Greenland.
I of course love to read books. I always read several at a time. I have my riding the bus book, my living room book, my bedroom book and I even have a bathroom book. However if one of them gets especially exciting it can get moved from place to place.
I'm also a collector. I collect snowglobes from places I have been, The Wizard of Oz stuff, Angels and old glansbilleder (don't know what they are called in English).
And since moving to Greenland I have really gotten into hiking. Walking in the unspoiled nature uphere is an experience that everybody should give themselves.

About my librarya very mixed bunch, but with alot of fantasy, books about movie history and biographies.
I have started a collection of bi-lingual picture books, but it is still a very small collection

Apologies for responding so late with my thanks for your wonderful Santa picks. We were out of town much of the holiday returning for the New Year. I have not read either book and am excited to begin. Both look great - The Shamers Daughter with my love of fantasy and We, The Drowned with its history.

Interesting too that we share the same profession. I am a Special Collections Librarian in an academic library in Virginia. Love my rare books and archives, and my daughter collects travel snow globes as well. A beautiful collection it makes with so many memories.

Have a wonderful 2014 and thanks so much for my books!

Yes, even I have heard of Knud Rasmussen and his trek. I am glad you enjoyed all three titles. Have you read any books by Farley Mowat, a Canadian author who write of the north? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farley_Mowat

Some titles are:
Lost In The Barrens
Never Cry Wolf
People of the Deer
The Siberians
Hi, I was looking for some books for my great nieces and nephews and found this . I thought you might be interested.

Stella!: A Treasury

by Marie-Louise Gay

Groundwood Books Ltd | October 1, 2012 | Hardcover

Marie-Louise Gay published Stella, Star of the Sea more than ten years ago. It was an immediate hit, and since then she has written and illustrated four more books featuring the engaging, red-headed heroine, Stella, and her little brother, Sam - Stella, Queen of the Snow; Stella, Fairy of the Forest; Stella, Princess of the Sky and, most recently, When Stella Was Very, Very Small. With gentle humor, freshness, a sense of whimsy and exquisite watercolors, Marie-Louise Gay gives us stories about two young siblings discovering their world. Here at last are all five books bound into one delightful volume. The treasury contains new art for the cover and opening page as well as new decorative line art.

When Stella Was Very, Very Small

"When Stella was very, very small, she thought she was a turtle. She also thought that trees could talk and that words were like ants running off the pages of her books." This is the story of a lovely tiny Stella, whose world is full of small adventures and slivers of magic. And she delights in sharing it all with Sam when he comes along.

Stella, Star of the Sea

Stella and Sam are spending the day at the sea. Stella has been to the sea before and knows all its secrets, but Sam has many questions and Stella has an answer for them all. The only thing she isn''t sure of, and neither are we, is whether Sam will ever come into the water.

Stella, Queen of the Snow

Winter was never so magical as in this marvelous book about Stella and Sam discovering a familiar landscape transformed by a heavy snowfall. Stella delights in showing Sam the many pleasures of a beautiful winter''s day, from skating and sledding to making snow angels in a fluffy, white magical world.

Stella, Fairy of the Forest

Little brother Sam wonders whether fairies are invisible. Stella assures him that she has seen hundreds of them and says that if she and Sam venture across the meadow and into the forest, they are likely to find some. But Sam surprises Stella and himself by having a few ideas of his own - ideas that ensure a wonderful end to a perfect day in the woods.

Stella, Princess of the Sky

Stella and Sam explore the wonders of the natural world. A vast luminous sky, the sun, the stars and the rising moon form the backdrop for their nocturnal expedition. As they encounter raccoons, fireflies, tree frogs and bats, Sam wonders if the moon can swim, if the sun wears pajamas or if he can catch shooting stars with his butterfly net. Stella, as always, has an answer for every question.

The Book Depository doesn't carry it. Amazon.com does at $19.36

There was enough money to buy 3 books. "The very first last time," again by a Canadian author, is about a young girl walking on the ocean floor under the frozen ice. The Book Depository now lists it as unavailable. They all were available before Christmas so I didn't add a fourth book in case there was a problem. So it is my fault that you only received 2 books. Sorry. I have learned from this for next year. How is the book on the Arctic?
Penny
I took another look at "Stella Queen of the Snow" and partly based on your excitement about the book I bought it for my children's books collection I have for visiting great nieces and nephews to read. Did you get 2 books or 3?
Happy New Year!
Oh, I am so glad you like your books. I had fun picking them out. We have very little snow here, Fredericton, New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada but it will soon come. I tried to get a mix of children's and adults so I hope you enjoy "A fabulous kingdom," it seemed to touch on so many aspects of the Arctic and it was current. Let me know what you think.

Happy New Year!

Hi:

Sorry for just now getting around to answering your post to me. I'm in USA visiting my family and my new grand daughter so I'm a little slow with trying to wade through all the emails I have at the moment.

I live in Qaqortoq. :) And yes having a book club there would be fun. Not much of anything in English is here in Qaqortoq for me to read. So having an avenue where I can would be exciting.
I hope you enjoy them. It was a pleasure picking out the books. Unless the prices changed from when I picked them there should be one more book on the way.
I won't talk politics in the Dragon, but I'm glad to say here that I'm happy about the Danish elections! Good stuff it is, that's for sure. It marks a good change - I have to admit I was worried about the way things were going in the regional politics there.
Wow. Your profile picture is beautiful, such an awesome view. Is that you in the picture?
did it work? are you on g+ ?
With heart-felt apologies, I am asking people to visit my profile AGAIN, as I deleted the previous map, and want to populate the new map. You are a dear to do this. Thanks.
Just wanted to say: Thank you so much for your SantaThing choices! Absolutely perfect - books I hadn't heard of but sound just my thing. I haven't read either yet but they are both near the top of my to-read pile. My boyfriend and I went to Denmark on holiday this year and we are getting into all things Scandinavian (in his case it is mostly Lego...) so a very happy coincidence.
I hope you had a very happy Christmas, and all the best for 2011 x
I just noticed that you have entered it in your library, I wonder, since I have the English version, will they be combined, or seen as two separate books?
The book arrived today! Thank you, I will treasure it. What a lovely thing it is, I am enjoying the story and all caught up in what will happen to the family. :)
I got your card!
Hello, one of the books I wanted to give you in the SantaThing, was "Lord of Misrule" by Christopher Lee. I thought it would encompass your interest in movies, fantasy, etc. I couldn't find it then, however, I discovered that I had it set aside to give to the used bookstore. If you are interested, and if it wouldn't cost more than it is worth to send it to you, I would be happy to do so. Do you have to pay duty on books received in the mail? Let me know if you would like it. Lee
Hi there!
Thank you so much for my Santathing choices - ther are super - just what I would have chosen myself!!!
Thank you so much!!

It's actually fairly short (only 148 pages). Send me your e-mail address (mine is mail@christophertusa.com), and I'll send you the e-book version of the book.

Thanks,

Chris
Noticed you liked White Oleander, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more before you commit:

Hei,

Jeg skriver på norsk fordi jeg tror du er dansk og dermed forstår denne "commenten" (nice word).

Ser at du har "Danmarkskrøniken" av Saxo. Har du lest den?

Er med i en historiegruppe her på LT, og vi "diskuterer" blant annet nordisk/skandinavisk historie.

Vennlig hilsen Kjell :)

I don't think there's any great rush to put the list together, so February or March should be fine. I've been browsing a bit and making some notes.
I know you're excited about a faster internet connection! I look forward to seeing your photos later today.
