Om migReader, librarian (retired), publisher (retired), stitcher, hooker,(retired due to vision), active artist, aunt/great aunt, Proud #108,810 LT member since November 2006.

Om mitt bibliotekMy library has grown and shrunk over the years as I moved about Canada - what do I move and what do I leave for others to enjoy. The size of my collection dependsed on the size of my apartment. My apartment has been reduced to what I refer to as my 'tiny house,' a studio minus the kitchen, a bed-sit in a nursing home. Life happens, it is not what you plan or expect. My library is what is on my Kindle.

My reading doesn't follow a plan. It depends on what I feel like, what I have on my Kindle or what is available at the library or Kindle Unlimited. I read what comes my way. I get ideas from a variety of sources including LT's question "What are you reading?" that is posted on Facebook on Fridays, author interviews I hear and postings on Club Read.

All the anniversaries resulting from World War I and II have generated some very interesting fiction and nonfiction. I have been particularly interested in the ones about women and the Resistance.

I have a broad interest in mysteries and particular enjoy ecclesiastical mysteries. These over the years have spread from mainly Catholic (Father Brown, Father Koesler) and Jewish (Rabbi Small) to many Protestant denominations as well as present day and historical.

For the most part I have moved away from cozies and look for mysteries that I can learn something from as well as enjoy. Historical mysteries fit in this category, as do translations of some foreign authors, e.g., Qiu Xiaolong and Henning Mankell. They provide insight to the country and its history and culture as well as a good mystery. I also like books about books - that's the librarian/publisher in me I guess. I read biographies also.

One of my favourite things to do is to reread a complete series in order; e.g.; Nameless by Bill Pronzini, the Catherine LeVendeur mysteries by Sharan Newman, Quintin Jardine and Marcia Muller and Dick Francis. Seeing the growth of both the author and the characters over the years is very interesting. I also see new things in the books.

In 1974 I visited my parents in Botswana and in 1975 did a 5 1/2-month safari from Victoria Falls to London. Since then I have been interested in reading about Africa and this expanded into an interest in world-wide literary travel, both current and historical. In September, 2018 I started writing a literary travel book on my adventures in Africa. Some from memory and more from the journals I kept. It is exciting and the people reading my work in progress ‘want more’ which I take as a good sign.

My entries in LT include books I own or have owned as well as books I borrowed from others or from libraries. I have sporadically kept lists of books I have read over the years which were a great help in create my reading history for LT. It is an interesting journey through my past.
