About My Library

Shelves by IKEA, but not enough of them. Am ambitiously planning to convert an unused closet into a bookcase. Books are currently catalogued by the ROYGBIV method. Historical Fiction and History are my mainstays. Particular weakness for CanLit, gothic, Victorian and historical thrillers.

About Me
Life prevents me from reading nearly as much as I'd like - my 'To Read' collection is scary (and exciting!). I've read Ulysses cover-to-cover and readily admit I understood about 5 words. According to Arukiyomi, I've read 11.5% of the 1001 books you must read before you die (2012 edition).
When I'm not reading, look for me in my garden or at the local thrift shops.
