About me63, Canada, disabled by poor health and confined to home, I read a great deal and like to recommend good literary fiction.
Much of my reading is borrowed from the public library, and acquired through Bookmooch.

My homepage is a lit blog with Reading Recommendations,
Book News, and Reviews. I love to have visitors leave comments and recommendations.

About my libraryGood literary fiction ONLY is what interests me now. I've read all the non-fiction I'm interested in. My listed library includes read, owned, wanted, willing to swap, to be read, and read but not owned.
I welcome recommendations BUT science fiction, fantasy, Western, genre romance, supernatural, or horror are not wanted, thank you.
I do enjoy original and well-written mystery/suspense/crime
from anywhere, Scandinavian mystery writers are particularly interesting at the moment.

Australian literature interests me very much too.
