It's probably obvious from a brief glance at my library, but you probably want to avoid angels and past-life regressions, patriotic political memoirs, and formulaic bodice-rippers. Not that you were thinking of those, but I didn't want to leave this space blank.
There's still a substantial portion of my collection not recorded by LibraryThing (give me a break——it's only been 12 years), mostly fiction. If you're thinking, "My god, he doesn't own any Nabokov! Or Austen!" or what-have-you, I promise you're wrong.
lucienspringer's Secret Santa is Tombleweed. Help Tombleweed pick the right book.
