I love to read anything, books, magazines, websites, even the yellow pages sometimes (I know this is sad, but for some reason I find it interesting). This is a list of good books I have read.  There is a variety of fiction and non-fiction. I read anywhere from 50 – 90 books a year, most are from the library. My local library has a great online ordering system for books.  I can search for the book at any branch throughout the province and then order it.  They then phone me when the book arrives at my local branch and I can go pick it up.  I suggest that for any of you who like to read see if your local library has the same system set up.  It is very convenient and allows you find just about any book even if your own branch does not have it.
