About menada

About my librarySeems a bit plain doesn't it?
I tend to find it hard to select works to read, especially something modern or recent. So a lot is tending to be older and well known, and come from classics imprint lines like Penguin Classics and Gallancz Fantasy & SF Masterworks.
I suppose that is what they're there for but I sure would like to know how to know, and why, something is a classic as well as selecting new material.
I also seem to be focusing on a lot of works from a few authors. They're good but it isn't particularly varied after while.
