I like cozy mysteries with unique settings, hobbies, or careers. I also like "books about books." I read some young adult books or kids' books. I also like Regency novels and historical mysteries. I read some "chick lit," depends on the topic, and Amish novels, but I have a lot of those. Nonfiction--science stuff, pop psychology, biographies, art, music, travel narratives. Definitely check out my library and reading preferences, and my LibraryThing wishlist and Amazon wishlist--I read a lot!

loubrarian: The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell.
Books by Eve Edwards they're well-researched historical YA novels - Dusk / Dawn or The Other Countess etc. (Sat, 22 Nov 2014 06:55:25 -0500)
calmclam: Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books are both mysteries and books about books -- the main character is a literary detective who investigates literary crimes in a world where crimes lick forgery, smuggling texts, taking the humor out of Thomas Hardy novels, and mucking with the plot of published books are common. Really smart and funny. (Sat, 29 Nov 2014 20:24:04 -0500)
