About my libraryMy collections include books that I have owned or borrowed and read, including almost all the books I read since 2006. There are gaps, some of which will never be filled - I will not be able to identify all the books I borrowed from the Winnipeg library systems going back to 1965, or books borrowed from school collections. Some dates are estimated, and the editions may be educated guesses. Rating on a single Likert item starts an internal debate - do I like something that entertains me?


Favorite authorsIain M. Banks, Saul Bellow, John le CarreĢ, William Gibson, Stephen Jay Gould, Patrick O'Brian, George Orwell, David Quammen (Shared favorites)
