I am open to just about anything. I read a lot but 99% of what I have read or own is logged here. I have a rather extensive wish list as well so feel free to borrow ideas from there. I love literature from around the world - I live in Canada and tend to read a lot of Canadian/US stuff so fiction from other places is always welcome.
Don't get this!
I don't really like romance books (unless it is secondary to the story like the Outlander series) and I am not religious at all. I prefer fiction but also like non-fiction like memoirs and biography.
Because of the mail strike going on here, can I change my preference to kindle books from Amazon.ca?
