Book tastes

If you look at my catalog the technical books are mine. I like family history, travel, space, music. I've updated my wishlist a little. I sing in a choir that performs major choral works. I'm happy to be surprised!

Don't get this!

Vampires, zombies, horror, politics, religion, "popular" works.

karenb: from RVC's wishlist: Malcolm Gladwell's David & Goliath (US$8.35)

Classic fantasy books that might go well with RVC's library:

(a) Alan Garner, The Owl Service (US$7.51) (Mon, 10 Dec 2018 19:13:36 -0500)

Cfraser: A fortunate life by A B Facey is very good (17.99) - non-fiction, set in Australia

Island Home by Tim Winton - the santee has a few books by this author in their library and another is on their wish list. (11.85 paperback/17.15 hardback). This is non-fiction and about their connection to the landscape (in Australia) - i personally enjoyed it.

Among the Islands (18.26) (9780802121820) and Throwim Way Leg (16.36 9781876485191) both by Tim Flannery involve lots of travelling around pacific islands and papua new guinea. Santee has another book by this author.

The shepherds hut by Tim Winton is on their wishlist (18.66)

(Mon, 10 Dec 2018 19:15:36 -0500)

karenb: (b) Lloyd Alexander, The book of three (US $5.81) (Mon, 10 Dec 2018 19:18:00 -0500)

lorannen: Removed The Planet Factory (9781472917720) due to budget. Replaced with Throwim Way Leg (9781876485191), suggested by Cfraser.

Done. (Tue, 11 Dec 2018 03:24:00 -0500)
