Book tastes

Surprise me! Though of course do be a little sensible :) An author new to me is always fun! These days I read a lot of graphic novels(probably due to life stealing away my reading time) and while I still regularly read scifi, I probably read as much "literary" fiction and non-fiction (popular science and history mostly). This is all just guidance; if there's something else that seems suitable when looking at my library, don't hesitate!

Don't get this!

No doorstoppers please, I've plenty of those waiting in TBR already. Also no series unless the books can truly stand on their own. No fantasy unless you feel your choice warrants breaking that rule.

Other notes

I prefer to read books that were written in English in that language, while books that were not written in English I prefer to read in Dutch. If the language is easy (eg a graphic novel) I'll take Spanish or French as well if that's the original language.

Tropical-Library: Hi there,

here is what I hope to be some great reading -- I would have loved to have gotten you Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt but sadly Book Depository doesn't have the original Dutch version.

Enjoy! (Fri, 30 Nov 2018 18:58:08 -0500)

lorannen: Done. (Sun, 09 Dec 2018 22:45:40 -0500)
