Classic literature, history, historical fiction, math and science, Peanuts (the comic strip), bridge (the card game), cooking, travel, trivia. I don't mind the occasional surprise.
Don't get this!
I'm not usually all that excited about science fiction or fantasy. Romance is right out.
I know some consider this sacrilege, but Ender's Game was just about the worst book I ever read. Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch and Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore were both very close on my "hated" list. My favorite books I read in 2018 were The Radium Girls and SPQR.
ericbell35's Secret Santa is ateolf. Help ateolf pick the right book.
thornton37814: The Peanuts Family Cookbook by Weldon Owen just came out this fall. I didn't see it listed in his library. He might enjoy that one. (Tue, 27 Nov 2018 17:44:02 -0500)
WeeTurtle: I would suggest "Bridge with the Blue Team" but I don't see that it's readily available. (Wed, 12 Dec 2018 01:28:15 -0500)

Cariola: These came up as books erichbell35 should borrow from my library:

libraryperilous: It's too bad Killers of the Flower Moon is $12.71 right now. It would appeal to someone who rated The Radium Girls highly: a similar rage-inducing historical injustice that's still very timely and a similar narrative nonfiction style.
Things Fall Apart, $10.76, ISBN 0385474547, link
Grendel (Gardner), $11.64, ISBN 0679723110, link
