Book tastes

Like mysteries, urban fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, 'light' non-fiction (nothing heavy or too serious). Willing to try something new, except for the categories in the "don't get this" section below. My catalog is up-to-date, so you can go by that. My favorite authors are listed so you can see the type of author I like, but if they are listed there, chances are I have all their books.

Don't get this!

Please don't get books in a series I already have. Some are on order, and some I stopped reading the series so just because they aren't there, doesn't mean I want them. Please no romance (of any sort) or young adult.

Secret Santa

owlie13's Secret Santa is sahra. Help sahra pick the right book.


EllsieFind: I think owlie might enjoy Robin Sloan's Sourdough in the urban fantasy category. Lots of fun and I didn't see in owlie's library. (Wed, 21 Nov 2018 10:05:07 -0500)

cbl_tn: She might like the Longmire series by Craig Johnson, starting with The Cold Dish. (Fri, 23 Nov 2018 21:30:14 -0500)

sahra: Hi owlie13,

I hope you like what I picked for you! I thought some of them crossed some of the genres you prefer. The last one, "Lottery", might seem like a strange choice -- there was $4.06 left and I didn't want to not spend it, but had a heck of a time finding options on Powell's for less than $5.

Happy holidays! :) (Sat, 01 Dec 2018 23:57:12 -0500)

lorannen: Done. (Fri, 07 Dec 2018 21:55:39 -0500)
