Book tastes

How about I give you some books off of my wishlist? That'll make things easier. You can get these or surprise me, I kinda' like most books. I mean, I work at LibraryThing for pete's sake. Art Art History SciFi Art books History (biographies, history of science, discoveries, etc.) Specifics from wishlist (in no order): How Star Wars Conquered the Universe Play It Away: A Workaholic's Cure for Anxiety Empires of the Sea: The Siege of Malta... The Unquiet Bones (Hugh de Singleton) Dreaming in Code: Two Dozen Programmers ....

Don't get this!

Romance. I have no romance in my life. I'm a computer nerd. I wouldn't know what to do with it.

Comments/suggestions

avanders: So I'm going to make a recommendation for Mr. Dawg that doesn't fit in w/ the list otherwise included above... i.e., it's a novel (and I don't know for sure, but I think the items he listed are not).

But I've looked at his library, and I think he'll enjoy it. He says he's a computer nerd but he doesn't have Ready Player One in his collections! So, I recommend that! :)

Good luck & Merry Christmas! (Fri, 05 Dec 2014 12:16:20 -0500)

jburlinson: Hi and Merry Christmas! I hope you like these. I got so interested in reading up on a couple of them that I'm probably going to put them on my own tbr list. (Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:14:24 -0500)

lorannen: I know conceptDawg really enjoyed Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, so, since Santa had some money left over, I'm throwing in the sequel, Ancillary Sword (B00I8289A0).

Done. (Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:27:13 -0500)
