Book tastes

I like books as objects, microhistories and nonfiction in general, and Terry Pratchett. If it's got a weird shape, does things that most books don't, is about the history of, like, wallets or something, or is a Discworld book I don't have (or is a nicer copy of a Discworld book I do have), I will be thrilled. Book history is also a genre I love but frankly, please add to any of my collections.

Don't get this!

Please don't get books with religious messages.

Secret Santa

jonsweitzerlamme's Secret Santa is JammiGo. Help JammiGo pick the right book.


BerlinBibliophile: For a microhistory I would suggest The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It's about scientific ethics and the intersection between science and human lives, and it's well written and the author also talked to Henrietta's descendants to get a new perspective.

libraryperilous: Sasha Abramsky's The House of Twenty Thousand Books is one of the most beautiful books about books I've read.

David Fishman's The Book Smugglers also might suit. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 19:26:21 -0500)

lorannen: Done. (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 18:57:41 -0500)
