My wish List:

I'm willing to trade and/or pay for postage/shipping.

I have not registered everything on my actual bookshelves. I do have a hard time giving up my books (I'm such a wimp! But I love my books! *sob*). However, if you want anything or want to trade for whatever, tell me what you're looking for, anyway!

Stuff I have or am interested in:

  • Favourite Canadian Writers: Margaret Atwood, Stuart McLean, Pierre Berton, Thomas King, Will Ferguson, Douglas Coupland, John Stackhouse, Charlotte Grey.
  • Canadian Culture, Canada-US Relations; Canadian History; First Nations culture, history, issues, and literature/poetry (esp. Pauline Johnson).

    Other Lit:
  • Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kobo Abe, John Steinbeck, Knut Hamsun, Andre Gide, Elias Canetti, James Joyce, Thomas Wolfe, Jane Austen, Vladimir Nabokov, Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, Hermann Hesse.
