About meI've lived and worked in northwestern Canada most of my adult life, and seem to be fairly permanently settled in a small town on the alaska highway. I cross country ski every day all winter, and hike and paddle in the summer, when I'm not reading, that is.

About my libraryMost of my books are now listed, except for a few odds and ends scattered around. I only have books listed here that I own. I may start on my CD's, videos and DVD's when the books are finished - or maybe not.

When I finished cataloguing most of my books I was surprised to find that over 10% of my books were not yet catalogued by anyone else, since then it has dropped to about 9% - still seems like quite a lot.

I have a particular interest in books about the Canadian north and the outdoors, especially to do with areas I have visited myself.
