About meI've been an avid reader since high school almost 30 years ago. I was lucky enough to come across the right teacher at the right time and reading has been a passion ever since. I'm Canadian (Toronto) but currently live in Northern New Jersey after having spent 6 years living in Tokyo. I love award winning books but really enjoy recommendations from friends and family more than anything else. It's a great way to understand people and to connect with them - what you read says a lot about who you are

About my libraryI try to read books recommended by people I meet and find interesting. Authors and writing styles appeal to me more than genres. If it is well written then the subject matter is secondary.
