With the proding of the mod, I'm introducing myself!
Um... I like Sci Fi, Fantasy, history (both real and historical fiction), and romance. Oh and knitting/craft books, though I'll understand if these aren't considered lendable by the owners! Oh, on a tangent, perhaps any meetings could have "reference" books too-- ones that the owners don't want to be lent out, but are happy to have someone read if they're both at the meeting?
What else... few months back, I was looking for LGBT romance novels; the current "Loud & Proud" display at the McDonald Road library is wonderful! I come & go on bouts of 19th century women's lit (not really sure what the genre is properly called, but Jane Austen, etc), and on Regency/Historical romance novels. Although the more "real" history I learn, the more it bugs me when facts aren't right.
I've a nice pile of books from the library at the moment (if anyone cares, two by Jane Austen, my first stab at reading George Elliot, Anita and Me, and the new Harry Potter), so i'm not begging for anything at the moment, and will have to go through the shelves for anything to give away... meanwhile, I suppose I could ask for future reference: anyone know any good LGB or T romance novels? Or good modern-British romance? (I'm an american and moved here recently, so I haven't sorted out yet who's good fluff and who's rubbish!)
