About my libraryA work in progress. My collection in LibraryThing contains books that are either currently in my possession or that I have read recently but no longer own. I have read thousands of books before joining LibraryThing that are not listed. Although I read all kinds of material I particularly enjoy literary fiction, history, natural history, biography, feminist literature, and mysteries. An added bonus is if the story is set in a faraway place.

As well as other groups, this year I will be participating in:
   • 2017 Category challenge
   • 2017 Club Read

Completed challenges:
   • Commonwealth challenge
   • Europe Endless challenge
   • Canadian Fiction/Non-Fiction challenge
   • 2014 Category challenge
   • 2015 Category challenge
   • 2016 Category challenge


I try to keep track of the countries where my books are set.

My ratings:
Obviously, my personal taste is the crux of the rating. Although it's difficult to rate books that are essentially different, my rating simply indicates how much I enjoyed them or how memorable they were. I also consider if I would recommend the work, and to whom.
