About my libraryI work in a library so I try to keep at least some of my reading current with new publications to stay aware of what people are looking for. Really though, I prefer historical fiction, certain styles of fantasy, and adventure/expedition type fiction. I also enjoy reading fiction that deals with Canadian places and issues. I'm a huge supporter of the library.
