About My Library
My library is comprised of books I've read, not necessarily own(ed). They're certainly not all here; nor do I intend to create such a catalogue. Rather, my plan is to use LT to track my annual adventures in reading, beginning with 2011.

About Me
I love lists! The difficulty is that I sometimes need a list to remind me where my lists are. Here are some book lists I enjoy:

1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die
Governor General's Literary Awards
Giller Prize
Booker Prize
Orange Prize

When I'm reading classics, I opt for Penguin Classics whenever possible. I like their weight and cover art, and find Penguin's Introductions and translations to be excellent.
