That's always been my policy, too -- I'll read absolutely anything that someone puts in front of me. I might not *finish* it, but I'll try.
That was one nice thing about working at the bookstore -- picking up interesting promos that I never would have read if I had to pay for them. I've found some interesting things that way.
You need to read Handmaid's Tale. Really! And I'm sorry about forgetting to tag you along with the other librarians!
The Handmaid's Tale is a little scary to read these days...
another country heard from...allright kat, i've found the perfect book for you. realizing that selby might be a bit much to start with, i've decided on the willow tree. then you can move on to requiem for a dream. although after that one, you may never speak to me again. and that's only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the type of stuff i usually read. and thanks for making me go through my books. i really need to inventory them at some point too. for those that don't know me, capital letters are overrated.
I'm not sure I'll have time to get to it but I wanted to throw out the notion that Phillip Pullman is one of my all time favorite authors; the Lockhart Trilogy is fantastic and "His Dark Materials" is very thought provoking. All are well written and women are seen as equals to men - not something that was common in the stories I grew up reading!
