I'm a fairly eclectic reader. My favorite genre is historical mystery (especially if it has an art or archaeology theme), but I also read literary fiction, history, literary travel, and books about books.
Don't get this!
No books in series that are already represented in my library. No romance. I don't read much science fiction/fantasy, with the exception of time travel books and alternate history. While I like historical fiction, I prefer that the main characters be fictional so that I can keep fact and fiction straight. (Historical figures as detectives are OK, though. I'm not going to confuse a historical mystery plot with real history!) I have a fairly low tolerance level for graphic sexual content or coarse language.
I've made a resolution to read more poetry next year. If you have a favorite poet or anthology, I'm willing to give it a try! Please feel free to select from my wishlist, but I like surprises, too.
cbl_tn's Secret Santa is pantsant. Help pantsant pick the right book.

Capybara_99: "The Library Book" by Susan Orlean lands in the intersection of literary travel, history and books about books. (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 18:18:03 -0500)
