Book tastes

I read mostly fiction but I collect a lot of nonfiction. Recent fiction reading preferences include speculative fiction, Victorian novels, queer romance, and British mysteries. Nonfiction includes horticulture and sustainable gardening books, bread-baking and vegeterian cookery books, comparative religion, folklore, LGBTQ, and certain kinds of art, among other things.

Don't get this!

Please no best-sellers in either fiction or nonfiction. I probably have seen it already and have decided whether or not I am interested. Romance novels of any kind should have both compelling PLOT and CHARACTERS. Erotic scenes are ok (not required), but only if the book is interesting to read apart from that.

Other notes

I am studying to be a librarian, so I also welcome things that aren't in my library and that you feel very strongly I should know about, even if they are in a category not mentioned above.
