Book tastes

I have an Amazon wish list and would love to have any of the books on that list. I love: Ellen Datlow-Terri Windling anthologies, Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Angela Carter, Thomas Merton, and Thomas Moore You can check my bookshelf so that something isn't accidentally duplicated AND my shelf will also give you a pretty good idea of what I like :) Those are all authors that I like so something by them would be nice too.

Don't get this!

Religious books unless it's by an author on my bookshelf or romance novels.

Other notes

Secret Santa

jonnijones's Secret Santa is SimoneA. Help SimoneA pick the right book.


SimoneA: Hi Jonni,

Hopefully you will enjoy the books I chose for you. I picked a Neil Gaiman short story collection containing his tribute to Ray Bradbury, since that seems yo really suit your likes. Slade House is a short novel by David Mitchell, and I think a great introduction to some of his more voluminous novels. Finally, I hope you haven't read Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore, which is a lovely story about a bookstore with a great hidden layer.

Happy reading and happy holidays! Simone (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 07:47:25 -0500)
